Iron Maiden Debut New Track “The Writing On The Wall” And Its Animated Music Video


Following an elaborate campaign of teases, Iron Maiden have released their first new track in roughly six years. That song is titled “The Writing On The Wall” and you can check it out below via an animated music video.

The band’s frontman Bruce Dickinson oversaw that video with Mark Andrews, Andrew Gordon and Blinkink‘s Nicos Livesey. Dickinson commented of the clip:

“I had a pretty clear idea of the concept to accompany the song and when I met Mark and Andrew, on Zoom, it quickly became clear we were all very much on the same wavelength, and this was reinforced with the addition of Nicos and his young BlinkInk team. Our weekly team Zoom meetings were then usually both highly creative and a lot of fun!

I’m very proud of the way the video turned out. It’s more like a mini-film, really. I knew it was going to work out as soon as Mark brought my treatment to life with his incredible storyboards. I thought we could make something very special together. I think we did and hope our fans will agree. In fact, it’s pretty much created by MAIDEN fans!!”

Livesey added:

“We quickly found the expertise we wanted, and people were literally throwing themselves at me to work on a MAIDEN video — we had more than 60 people in 13 countries from Brazil to France and Romania to the U.S.A. to add something to the clip and I’d say their love, passion and understanding of the band shines through every frame. They were a dream team for the producers and myself to manage.”
