Iron Maiden are premiering a video for “Speed Of Light”, the lead track from their forthcoming first-ever double studio album, “The Book Of Souls.”
Due September 4, the project was produced by Kevin Shirley and recorded in Paris in 2014. Plans to release the album earlier this year were delayed so that frontman Bruce Dickinson – who was recently given the all-clear from a tumour – would have time to recuperate and assist in the launch.
The “Speed of Light” video was produced and directed by Llexi Leon with animation and visual effects by The Brewery Production Company. A huge Iron Maiden fan, Leon’s first music video is an ‘homage’ to four decades of video gaming and Iron Maiden’s 40th anniversary.
“The Book Of Souls” will be available in a 2CD deluxe hardbound book limited edition, 2CD standard edition, Triple heavyweight black vinyl, High res audio (24-bit Mastered for ITunes and non-Mastered for iTunes) and Standard res audio (16 bit/ 44.1 kHz).
Iron Maiden were awarded the 2015 O2 Silver Clef Award by UK charity Nordoff Robbins at their 40th anniversary gala on July 3 in recognition of the band’s “outstanding contribution to UK music.”
