BRUCE DICKINSON Says His Upcoming Solo Album, ‘The Mandrake Project’ Is ‘Much More’ Than Just Music

Bruce Dickinson 2023

Bruce Dickinson, the lead vocalist of IRON MAIDEN, recently shared additional details about his forthcoming solo album in a newly published video message. The album, named The Mandrake Project, is set to hit the shelves in early 2024 under the label BMG. Notably, the album will mark Dickinson‘s reunion with his long-standing music partner and producer, Roy “Z” Ramirez.

The Mandrake Project signifies Dickinson‘s seventh solo venture and the first in nearly two decades, with his last solo album, Tyranny Of Souls, having been released in 2005.

Bruce now said: “So, everybody, everybody on the planet who’s been going, ‘Oh my god. What’s this solo thing gonna be all about when it finally happens?’ Well, it’s finally happening. It’s called ‘The Mandrake Project’, and’ of course, it’s music. But, it’s also much, much, more. More than that, I’m not gonna reveal for now, ’cause it will become self-explanatory and self-evident as we go through and reveal more layers of the onion for you all.”

“But, yeah, The Mandrake Project. We’ve been working on this since 2014, when it wasn’t called The Mandrake Project. And it’s had time to grow and mature. And, oh my God, has it ever. I think you will be really, really excited. And, I hope you love everything that we’ve created for you.”
