A 30-second preview of a new IRON MAIDEN song from the band’s forthcoming album, “The Book Of Souls”, is available in the YouTube clip below.
In a recent interview with U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine, IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris was asked if singer Bruce Dickinson’s cancer diagnosis at the end of 2014 affected the recording of “The Book Of Souls”.
“Well, it didn’t at all, because Bruce didn’t know and none of us knew anything about… There was no inkling of any of it,” Steve said. “He’d finished all his vocal bits completely anyway, and then there were some other bits and pieces we were doing. Really, we didn’t know anything — he didn’t show any signs at all. I mean, his singing, when you hear it… He’s singing better than ever.”
He continued: “It didn’t cause any problems in that department at all. He wasn’t showing any signs of being ill. I didn’t even know until a few weeks afterwards, when he got his results back. It was such a shock to him and everybody else, because it just wasn’t expected at all.”
