EMI Music Japan has posted video footage (with soundboard audio) of the intro and the first two songs ("Aces High" and "2 Minutes to Midnight") from IRON MAIDEN's February 16, 2008 concert in Tokyo. Watch the 16-minute clip in Windows Media or Real Media formats.

UK's What Records will release IRON MAIDEN's upcoming collection, "Somewhere Back In Time", as a limited-edition double picture disc LP set on May 12.

Due on May 12 via EMI, "Somewhere Back In Time" charts the first decade of IRON MAIDEN's extraordinary career. The CD celebrates the essence of the current tour by featuring most of the essential tracks from the band's first seven studio albums and one live album, recorded between 1980 and 1989, and is aptly entitled "Somewhere Back In Time".

In an unprecedented move to let younger fans hear, understand and appreciate the quality of these recordings EMI launch the unique Somewhere Best In Sound whereby the curious/adventurous can download the entire album without charge from as a high-quality audio file (WMA) which is a typically powerful 320 kbps. Fans will then be able to listen to the entire album at their leisure three times before the download expires. The listener is then given a simple option to upgrade and purchase the album as a full traditional DRM-free download (so they can then copy or do as they like with the album).
