Former Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno is in the process of writing songs for a new album, and has posted three new demos to YouTube, including a re-worked version of the Iron Maiden classic, "Running Free." You can listen in the video below.
If you ever thought "The Trooper" would make a great bed-time song for your little tyke, we've got great news for you. The latest release from the folks at Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star features lullaby versions of 12 Iron Maiden songs, including "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and yes, "The Number Of The Beast."

After eight years of knuckle-hard rockin’, Iron Maiden has released a concept album about ESP and clairvoyance, the very qualities they use to achieve their incredible guitar chemistry. It’s called Seventh Son of a Seventh Son; it’s Iron Maiden’s seventh studio album, their seventh with producer Martin Birch.
