Producer Kevin Shirley has confirmed that Iron Maiden’s first album since 2006’s A Matter of Life or Death is in the can. He says: ‘There’s still work to do, but the band portion is complete and in the can, so to speak.’ Fingers crossed this frees Bruce Dickinson up to fire up his Astraeus Airlines plane and the band can haul Eddie out of his cage to tour again.
