In a video, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson claimed that Iron Maiden will surprise their fans with their new album titled ‘Senjutsu.’

Iron Maiden is considered among the pioneers of the new wave of the British heavy metal movement. Since their formation in 1975, the band became so prolific that their discography now features 40 albums.

With a career full of musical efforts and numerous albums, Iron Maiden still produces new music. The band released their latest record, ‘The Book Of Soul,’ back in 2015. As for now, Iron Maiden is working on their upcoming album, ‘Senjutsu,’ which will be released on September 3, 2021.

Speaking about their upcoming album, Iron Maiden lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson described his feelings in a video posted on the band’s official YouTube account. He expressed Iron Maiden’s excitement about the album and stated they started recording it in 2019.

Dickinson then commented on the songs in the album and claimed they are pretty long and varied. Moreover, he also said two of them are different from their usual style. Therefore, Dickinson hinted these two songs would be a surprise for the fans in a good way.

In the video, Bruce Dickinson talked about the new album ‘Senjutsu’:

“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 setup period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. 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!
