BMG will continue their reissues series of the IRON MAIDEN catalog with the second set of Digipak CD titles in The Studio Collection – Remastered, to be released on March 22. Following on from 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunes project, The Studio Collection – Remastered features recordings taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases.
The albums supersede the previously available studio catalogue and all titles will also be made available on streaming platforms. As a bonus for collectors, one CD from each batch of releases will also be optionally available in a specially artworked box featuring a 1:24 scale figurine and exclusive patch. In the March 22nd batch, this will be Somewhere In Time.
Maiden founder member and bassist Steve Harris says, “We’ve wanted to revisit these for a long time and I was delighted with the remastering we did in 2015. I thought it was the best that our albums have ever sounded and it was only right that we made them available on CD now too.”
All four albums in this second batch are available for pre-order now from studiocollection.ironmaiden.com
