MAIDEN's first-ever commercial single release in the U.S., "Different World" features Radio 1 Zane Lowe's "Legends" session of "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and "The Trooper" as B sides. These tracks have previously been used as B sides to "The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg", which was released in Europe in August. Although it was not eligible for the U.K. chart, it reached No 1 in Spain, Sweden, Finland and Hungary.

IRON MAIDEN's new album, "A Matter of Life and Death", has sold 138,000 copies in the United States since its Sept. 5 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
