Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson has revealed the first details of a new solo venture, coming in 2024. Titled The Mandrake Project, it finds Brucie reuniting with longtime collaborator and producer Roy Z, with whom he teamed up for previous solo albums Balls To Picasso, Accident Of Birth, The Chemical Wedding and Tyranny Of Souls.

“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!”
