IRON MAIDEN producer Kevin Shirley, who is currently working with the band at a London studio on their as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2000's "Brave New World", has posted the following recording update via his web site:"We tracked another new song [Tuesday], and as these are the last tracks for the album, the guys don't know them quite as well as some of the earlier ones! So, they rehearsed a bit, and then we cut a track, and it felt great, but there were a few mistakes all over the place - so we cut another four takes, but nothing had the innocence of the first take, and they were all sounding as bombastic as an AEROSMITH power ballad, so we took a break and will try again - but at least we've one fantastic take which will need some minor repairs here and there. So, I'm on my way into the studio, and I'm sure we'll have this song done by early evening."
