Album: The Book of Souls (2015)
  • This Bruce Dickinson penned song was originally intended for the Iron Maiden frontman's solo album before being co-opted for The Book of Souls. He told Kerrang!: "The demo was done and the band just copied what Roy (Z-long time Bruce collaborator) and I did in his bedroom In fact, the little keyboard bit in the beginning is me in Roy's bedroom."
  • The song was recorded in Drop D tuning, which is a first for Iron Maiden.
