Iron Maiden will release 16th album The Book Of Souls on September 4 worldwide – and it’s their first-ever double-length studio release. 

Dickinson says: “We recorded it at Guillame Tell Studios in Paris, where we’d done the Brave New World album in 2000, so the studio holds special memories for all of us. “We were delighted to discover the same magical vibe is still alive and very much kicking there. By the time we’d finished we all agreed that each track was such an integral part of the whole body of work that if it needed to be a double album, then double it was going to be.”
