Iron Maiden is back with “The Writing On The Wall,” their first new song in six years, and it comes with a stunning animated video.
The video is the work of London-based animation studio BlinkInk and is helmed by Pixar executives/huge Maiden fans Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon.
Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson said in a statement, “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!”
He added, “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!!”
