Bruce Dickinson Has Half of New Solo Album Written Read More: Bruce Dickinson Has Half of New Solo Album Written

Bruce DickinsonBruce Dickinson is once again making everyone feel lazy. As Iron Maiden gear up for the start of their 2016 world tour in support of The Book of Souls, the high-flying frontman has confirmed he has already made some significant headway on his seventh solo effort. As he told Loudwire in our exclusive interview back in September (video below), the singer reiterated that he has about half an album written.

Speaking with Classic Rock, Dickinson spoke about his preparation for Maiden rehearsals and touched upon how his solo work is readying him for the task. He said, “I’m looking forward to getting stuck into some sensible rehearsals. I may even sneak off and do some solo songwriting because I’ve got half of an album on the blocks.”

Dickinson continued, “‘If Eternity Should Fail’ was originally intended as one of its tracks. But it could be a cool, relatively unchallenging way of pre-warming up the voice before I go into Maiden rehearsals. So making some noise that way first could be a possibility.”

“If Eternity Should Fail” is the first track off the newest Iron Maiden record and is the first song the band has played in Drop D tuning. The synthesizer part that opens the song was even recorded with Roy Z — Dickinson’s solo writing partner — and was kept in tact on The Book of Souls.
