Following the recent announcement of two special benefit gigs for former drummer, Clive Burr, Iron Maiden have also announced they will release a special edition CD single of “Run To The Hills.” The band will donate all their income from the single and the benefit shows to the Clive Burr Multiple Sclerosis Trust Fund. EMI Records will release the single on Monday 11th March. All formats will be strictly limited edition.
“Run To The Hills” will be available on two versions, each will feature the original version of the song featuring Clive on drums, as well as a new live version recorded last January at the Rock in Rio III festival and unreleased matrial from the Clive-era. There will also be a special vinyl edition.
The live version of “Run To The Hills” is taken from their forthcoming double live album, Rock In Rio, which will be released by EMI Records on March 25th and was recorded in January 2001. There will be a collectors' item triple picture disc vinyl. The album was produced by Kevin Shirley and co-produced by bassist Steve Harris.
"The Rock in Rio festival was a huge production and as the recording facilities were already there we had the opportunity to record the event which was Maiden’s biggest headlining show ever,” says Harris. “Kevin Shirley came down to the show to oversee the recording and we then returned to New York to pull together all the parts. The crowd were absolutely amazing and at times nearly drowned out the band with their singing. The whole show was an unforgettable experience and I want to thank all the fans who were at the show. It was a fantastic way to finish out the tour and I'm really pleased with final result as it really captures the atmosphere of the night."
