Iron Maiden have released a video trailer for the next batch of releases in The Studio Collection Remastered CD series.
The band launched Iron Maiden, Killers, The Number Of The Beast and Piece Of Mind back in November (opens in new tab).
And, on March 22, the next four albums in the series will launch in the shape of Powerslave, Somewhere In Time, Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son and No Prayer For The Dying.
The collection follows on from the band’s 2014-2017 vinyl releases, and are from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-resolution digital albums.
The new trailer plays snippets from some of the albums’ best-loved tracks and shows the artwork and packaging, including the Somewhere In Time-era Eddie figure and accompanying patch.
Check it out below.
Maiden bassist Steve Harris said: "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.”
The next set of releases are due to launch in April on a date still to be confirmed, and will include Fear Of The Dark, The X Factor, Virtual XI and Brave New World.

The most underrated of Maiden’s 80s albums, Somewhere In Time came between two major milestones and, as a result, seldom gets the props it deserves.
