Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson shared that new solo music is set to drop in 2024. The album, titled The Mandrake Project, sees Bruce reuniting with longtime collaborator and producer Roy Z, with whom he collaborated with for previous solo albums including Balls To Picasso, Accident Of Birth, The Chemical Wedding and Tyranny Of Souls. The Mandrake Project will mark Dickinson’s first solo material since 2005’s Tyranny of Souls.
Said Dickinson: “This album has been a very personal journey for me and I am extremely proud of it. Roy Z and I have been planning, writing and recording it for years, and I am very excited for people to finally hear it. As for what The Mandrake Project actually is… all will be revealed soon!”
Dickinson will embark on a nine-date tour in Mexico and Brazil in April 2024, and also shared he is planning to add more dates for a tour around the new album: “I’m even more excited at the prospect of getting out on the road with this amazing band that we have put together, to be able to bring it to life. We’re planning to play as many shows as we can in as many places as possible, for as many people as we can!”
