IRON MAIDEN Announces New Album Senjutsu

Loosely meaning "tactics & strategy".

After releasing their new single "The Writing On The Wall" later week, Iron Maiden has now revealed they're releasing a new album titled Senjutsu (loosely meaning "tactics & strategy") on September 3. The album was recorded in Paris with longtime producer Kevin Shirley and co-produced by bassist Steve Harris.

"We chose to record at Guillaume Tell Studio in France again as the place has such a relaxed vibe. The setup there is perfect for our needs; the building used to be a cinema and has a really high ceiling so there's a great acoustic sound. We recorded this album in the same way we did The Book Of Souls in that we'd write a song, rehearse it and then put it down together straight away while it was all fresh in our minds," said Harris.

"There's some very complex songs on this album which took a lot of hard work to get them exactly as we wanted them to sound, so the process was at times very challenging, but Kevin is great at capturing the essence of the band and I think it was worth the effort! I'm very proud of the result and can't wait for fans to hear it.”

"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," added vocalist Bruce Dickinson.

"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!"
