IRON MAIDEN Streams First New Song In Six Years "The Writing On The Wall"

A very desert rock take on their sound.

After weeks of teasing, Iron Maiden is back with a new single titled "The Writing On The Wall". The song just premiered over on YouTube with a brand new music video done by ex-Pixar executives Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Brave, etc.) alongside animation studio BlinkInk.

"I had a pretty clear idea of the concept to accompany the song and when I met Mark and Andrew, on Zoom, it quickly became clear we were all very much on the same wavelength, and this was reinforced with the addition of Nicos and his young BlinkInk team," said vocalist Bruce Dickinson. "Our weekly team Zoom meetings were then usually both highly creative and a lot of fun!

"I’m very proud of the way the video turned out, it’s more like a mini-film really. I knew it was going to work out as soon as Mark brought my treatment to life with his incredible storyboards – I thought we could make something very special together. I think we did and hope our fans will agree. In fact it’s pretty much created by Maiden fans!!"

"We quickly found the expertise we wanted, and people were literally throwing themselves at me to work on a Maiden video – we had more than 60 people in 13 countries from Brazil to France, & Romania to the U.S.A. to add something to the clip and I’d say their love, passion and understanding of the band shines through every frame," added BlinkInk director Nicos Livesey. "They were a dream team for the producers and myself to manage.”
