Na een uitgebreide campagne heeft Iron Maiden hun eerste nieuwe nummer in ongeveer zes jaar uitgebracht: “The Writing On The Wall“. Dit ging gepaard met een animatievideo.
De frontman van de band, Bruce Dickinson, hield toezicht op die video met Mark Andrews, Andrew Gordon en Nicos Livesey van Blinkink. Dickinson becommentarieerde de clip:
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!
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!
