As reported over the course of last two months, residents in many European countries have been singing songs and playing instruments from their windows and balconies amid the country’s continued coronavirus lockdown.
Several videos surfaced online with people all over the world singing in unision with their neighbours, blasting music on full volume, or just playing their instruments.
One such video is a guy dressed as Easter Bunny and goes by the name “Rock Bunny” who is playing IRON MAIDEN‘s “Phantom Of The Opera” on his balcony in Paris, France amid coronavirus lockdown.

The pandemic’s global death toll has reached over 197,000, while the global number of cases has surpassed 2,835,000, according to the WHO, which is the health agency of the United Nations.
IRON MAIDEN is rumored to have completed work on a new studio album.
MAIDEN‘s last album, The Book Of Souls, was recorded in late 2014 in Paris, France with longtime producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley.
Last month, Shirley offered a recap of 2019 on social media and alluded to a renewed MAIDEN collaboration, saying that he spent three months in Paris earlier this year “working very hard on an unnamed but not-very-secret project.”
“I finished with a loud ringing in my ears,” he added.
In May 2019, Italian website, Maiden Concerts, speculated that IRON MAIDEN has already recorded their new album and is in the final stages of finalization.
Kevin Shirley has been signing all of the band’s records since 2000 and will be the sixth album since the group became a sextet with the return of Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith twenty years ago in February 1999.
There is no further information on the musical direction of the work, on the topics, covered and other aspects. What is known is that all the musicians, their wives, and the producer are at the same time in Paris, where Guillaume Tell Studios is located, where MAIDEN recorded Brave New World (2000) and The Book of Souls.
