Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has released a new video message in which he offered a bit more information about his upcoming solo album. Titled The Mandrake Project, the record sees him reunited with long-time musical collaborator and producer Roy "Z" Ramirez.
Dickinson offered: "So, everybody, everybody on the planet who's been going, 'Oh my god. What's this solo thing gonna be all about when it finally happens?' Well, it's finally happening. It's called The Mandrake Project, and' of course, it's music. But, it's also much, much, more. More than that, I'm not gonna reveal for now, 'cause it will become self-explanatory and self-evident as we go through and reveal more layers of the onion for you all."
He continued: "We've been working on this since 2014, when it wasn't called The Mandrake Project. And it's had time to grow and mature. And, oh my God, has it ever. I think you will be really, really excited. And, I hope you love everything that we've created for you."
The Mandrake Project will be Dickinson's seventh solo album and his first since Tyranny Of Souls in 2005. Dickinson recently announced a handful of 2024 tour dates for Mexico and Brazil, which you can check out below.
