Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson has announced his first solo album in nearly 20 years. In 2024, the NWOBHM icon will release The Mandrake Project, his first individual venture outside Iron Maiden since 2005's Tyranny of Souls

The record marks Dickinson's return to his longtime collaborator, guitarist-producer Roy Z — but that's all we know about it thus far. Dickinson is still keeping the tracklist under wraps, and hasn't dropped a single to pair with the announcement. 

"This album has been a very personal journey for me and I am extremely proud of it," Dickinson said in a press release. "Roy Z and I have been planning, writing and recording it for years, and I am very excited for people to finally hear it.

"I'm even more excited at the prospect of getting out on the road with this amazing band that we have put together, to be able to bring it to life. We're planning to play as many shows as we can in as many places as possible, for as many people as we can!"

"As for what The Mandrake Project actually is… all will be revealed soon!"

Dickinson has announced a handful of 2024 shows in Mexico and Brazil, but so far no word on whether the tour will becoming to North America. Check out what appears to be the album's cover art below, and stay tuned for more details.
