Stream the Steve Harris/Janick Gers track; the second from the band’s forthcoming 17th studio album.

Lats month heavy metal forefathers Iron Maiden debuted the first offering from their highly-anticipated 17th full length studio album Senjutsu with the entirely epic, “The Writing On the Wall“. Along with the massive introduction, the track boasted an animated visual that tapped former Pixar execs Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon to help with the translation.

Maiden is now back with a quick follow-up to the powerful lead single with a second offering from Senjutsu, with the Steve Harris/Janick Gers penned “Stratego”. Delivering signature Maiden structure and another commanding vocal performance from Bruce Dickinson, the album’s September 3rd arrival date cannot come fast enough.

Senjutsu follows Iron Maiden’s 2015 double album opus, The Book of Souls. The second consecutive double album, Senjutsu boasts 10 tracks clocking in at a weighty 82-minutes long. The album also features the artwork of Mark Wilkinson who created a fierce Samurai iteration of the band’s iconic Eddie mascot to adorn the album cover.
