In a recent conversation he had with Iron Maiden Brazil, the frontman of the band, Bruce Dickinson, talked about their upcoming album named ‘Senjutsu’ and their thoughts on the video they are going to drop soon.
Last month, the official social media accounts of Iron Maiden made a common announcement and revealed that they are set to release their seventeenth studio album ‘Senjutsu’ on September 3, 2021. The album is now available for pre-order in many formats including Standard 2CD Digipak and Vinyl.
Aside from being the frontman of Iron Maiden, Dickinson is also a well-known spoken-word artist. While Maiden was working on their new album for many years following ‘The Book of Souls,’ which was released in 2015, Bruce made a couple of spoken-word tours all over the world and he go around the United Kingdom this summer.
In the interview he had with Iron Maiden Brazil, Bruce stated that the album is gold right now and it’s ready to go. He also noted that he and his bandmates were dying to announce the album to the audience for many months while joking about the title of the record.
Bruce shared his thoughts saying:
“So now you know. The big secret is no longer a secret. The album is called ‘Belshazzar’s Feast.’ No, it’s not. So, ‘Senjutsu’ is the album. We’ve all been, like this for ages. So, it’s amazing that the news of it is out. It’s also a great opportunity, ’cause I’m doing these one-man shows, and I can actually talk about it.
Actually, you can ask me questions about it, and I can talk about it. You never know, we might even take the opportunity, ’cause we’re gonna have a big screen and a big sound system and there’s an amazing video with some really cool stuff, which, of course, you know about. But oh my God, on a big screen. See the video on a big screen. We could talk about the video. We could play the video. Oooooh, there’s an idea.”
