Bruce Dickinson talked to “Trunk Nation Virtual Invasion” on Sirius XM about his next solo album…
“I’ve got a work in progress right now that’s been kind of on and off, on the backburner, for, well, three or four years now. And basically, since the pandemic happened, I may have had loads of time, but I can’t go to America to do it — to finish up the writing for it, start the recording process and all that stuff. So I’m just waiting for Uncle Joe to let me into America.”
A few years ago he said that the album is going to be called “If Eternity Should Fail”, just like the opening track on Iron Maiden’s 2015 disc “The Book Of Souls”.
“It’s a whole concept album, which was gonna be called ‘If Eternity Should Fail’. And ‘If Eternity Should Fail’ was the title track to my new solo album. And a bit like ‘Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter’, it got commandeered for Iron Maiden. So if I did do another solo album, which I think I will, I might just stick to my original plan and have that as the title track. I mean, I did write it — it was the first track that I wrote for it. So, yeah, I’d probably still include that song. But it would be… the feel would be slightly different — not very much, though — from the Maiden version”, he told Finland’s Kaaos TV.
