    Next month brings the release of Iron Maiden’s first album in five years, a double LP called The Book of Souls. In a new interview with Italy’s Corriere Della Sera, frontman Bruce Dickinson revealed the one of the album’s tracks is dedicated to the late Robin Williams.

    “My favorite song is one I didn’t write,” Dickinson explained. “It’s ‘Tears of a Clown,’ which talks about Robin Williams. I ask myself how could he be so depressed when he always seemed to be so happy.”

    Williams committed suicide on August 11th, 2014 following a long battle with depression.

    The Book of Souls arrives on September 4th through Parlophone Records. Below, watch the video for lead single “Speed of Light”.
