IRON MAIDEN WILL RELEASE ′′ WRATH OF THE WATERS ′′ IN SEPTEMBER 2021.
Iron Maiden's highly anticipated new studio album, Wrath of the Waters, will premiere worldwide via Parlophone Records (Sanctuary / BMG in the United States). It was recorded in Paris with producer Kevin ′′ Caveman ′′ Shirley in early 2019 at Guillaume Tell Studios where the band previously recorded ′′ The Book of Souls ′′ and ′′ Brave New World ". The finishing touches were given to beginning of this year. However, the band decided to delay its release due to the current knowledge situation regarding the COVID-19. pandemic.
Cover art was created by artist Liem Setiawen. Like with ′′ The Book of Souls ′′ there is a broader division in songwriting compared to Maiden's previous records, with bassist and founding member Steve Harris contributing to seven of the tracks; 6 of them with Maiden guitarists and a unique composition. Once again, Bruce Dickinson signs one of the solo songs, two alongside Adrian Smith and there's Steve Harris featuring them both.
Steve Harris comments:
′′ It was an atypical composition for our way of working. We recorded the material in 2019 but continued to spin with Legacy of the Beast so we didn't introduce it immediately. We spent a short time in the studio and I think the immediacy of the composition is really cool and great songs came out. I think we've made a great album with Wrath of the Waters. Can't wait for you guys to hear it too, and of course, we hope to get it on stage soon!"
Bruce Dickinson continues:
′′ We started working at Wrath of the Waters ′′ in late winter 2019 and recorded at Guillaume Tell Studios just like last time. That place really suits us all so well; there's a special atmosphere and it looks like magic flows and makes ideas sprout from everywhere. We all agree that we have achieved an album with a unique identity, but at the same time part of Iron Maiden's identity."
