Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson talked in an interview with Eddie Trunk about his next solo album that according to him has been a work in progress for the last four years.
“Not only would I like to. I’ve got a work in progress right now that’s been kind of on and off, on the backburner, for, well, three or four years now. And basically, since the pandemic happened, I may have had loads of time.
But I can’t go to America to do it — to finish up the writing for it, start the recording process and all that stuff. So I’m just waiting for Uncle Joe to let me into America.”
6 years after the successful “Book of Souls”, Iron Maiden released their new studio album “Senjutsu”. The record was made in Paris with their longtime producer Kevin Shirley and co-produced by bassist Steve Harris.
“We’re all really excited about this album. We recorded it back in early 2019 during a break in the Legacy tour so we could maximize our touring yet still have a long set up period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. Of course the pandemic delayed things more – so much for the best laid plans – or should that be ‘strategies’!? The songs are very varied, and some of them are quite long. There’s also one or two songs which sound pretty different to our usual style, and I think Maiden fans will be surprised – in a good way, I hope!”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
