AUDIO: Former Iron Maiden singer remakes Maiden classic

Former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di’Anno continues to offer demos for fans to check out.

Earlier this week, he posted “Black Boots” (hear it here), while asking fans for feedback on the track as it may appear on an upcoming cd release.

Now, Di’Anno has added four more tracks to his youtube channel (here), including "Can You Hear Me Now?", "Psycho Sniper," "Only Fools Die Laughing" and a "reworking" of the Iron Maiden classic "Running Free."

Di’Anno has really gone modern and heavy with his Maiden update; the original appeared on the band’s 1980 eponymous debut.

Check out both versions below.
