Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson is gearing up for the release of his first solo album since 2005, “The Mandrake Project.” The album will arrive in March of next year, and Dickinson dropped the first track, “Afterglow Of Ragnarok,” a few weeks back followed recently by his solo demo version of “If Eternity Should Fail,” a track that originally appeared on Iron Maiden’s 2015 album, “The Book Of Souls.” 

In a recent interview with Kerrang!, Dickinson also revealed that he recently got married for the third time tying the knot with French fitness instructor Leana Dolci. 

The two split their time between Paris and Dickinson’s home in London. “I wander round and it all feels a bit bohemian, a bit exotic,” he told Kerrang! of Paris, where he has lived for a few years now.

Dickinson’s second wife, Patrice “Paddy” Bowden, was tragically found dead in May of 2020 at the home they once shared in West London following wha the singer called a “tragic accident.” 

“Our children Austin, Griffin and Kia and I are devastated,” Dickinson said in a statement at the time. “Out of respect for Paddy we won’t be making any further comment at this hugely difficult and painful time for our family.”

Dickinson reportedly split from Bowden privately in 2018, but the news of their breakup wasn’t public until late 2019.
