It’s no surprise that Iron Maiden as been dropping hints about a new album for 2020. Shirley offered a recap of 2019 on social media and alluded to a renewed Maiden collaboration, saying that he spent three months in Paris earlier this year “working very hard on an unnamed but not-very-secret project.” He added: “I finished with a loud ringing in my ears.”
Back in May, Italian web site Maiden Concerts first speculated that Iron Maiden was putting the finishing touches on a new album. The site concluded that the LP was nearing completion after gathering social media evidence that all six members of the band, their wives and Shirley were in Paris at the same time. The producer even posted new pictures of Guillaume Tell Studios, where Maiden recorded “Brave New World” (2000) and “The Book Of Souls”, saying he was finalizing a major project.
Expect new Maiden in 2020!
