Iron Maiden announce second set of Digipak CD reissues

THE STUDIO COLLECTION – REMASTERED

POWERSLAVE / SOMEWHERE IN TIME / SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON / NO PRAYER FOR THE DYING

SECOND SET OF CD DIGIPAK ALBUMS RELEASED ON MARCH 22ND

Parlophone Records will continue their reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalogue with the second set of Digipak CD titles in The Studio Collection – Remastered, to be released on March 22nd.

Following on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunes project, The Studio Collection – Remastered features recordings taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases. The albums supersede the previously available studio catalogue and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms.

As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases will also be optionally available in a specially art-worked box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the March 22nd batch, this will be Somewhere In Time.

Maiden founder member and bassist Steve Harris says, “We’ve wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too.”

All four albums in this second batch are available for pre-order now from studiocollection.ironmaiden.com.

The first four albums in this collection were released in November 2018
Iron Maiden / Killers / The Number Of The Beast (option of standard or collectors boxset edition including TNOTB Eddie figurine and patch) / Piece Of Mind

IRON MAIDEN will continue their Legacy Of The Beast tour in 2019 across North, South and Central America including a headline show at Brazil’s Rock In Rio in October.

The tour opened in Europe last year playing to over 750,000 people at sold-out stadium, arena and headline festival shows and was hailed by fans and media alike as the must-see show of the summer.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
