It will be included on his upcoming solo album 'The Mandrake Project,' which is due out March 1.

"I had the chorus lyric since I visited Grasmere for a wedding back in 2012," Dickinson said in a press release, "It wasn’t difficult years later to create the rest of the song with so much rich imagery in my head!"

The video features Dickinson playing a preacher who makes a deal with the devil. It was directed by Ryan Mackfall and shot in Cornwall.

"Bruce was a childhood hero of mine in the early 80s," one said. "Here he is 40 years later with the passion, energy and imagination to pull this off. Amazing!"

The new track is the second single from the frontman's upcoming album The Mandrake Project, which is due out on March 1. It's currently available for pre-order through Dickinson's website.
