But we don't get the 2nd until album release, I believe. Or maybe for TFF we got both El Dorado and Final Frontier? Can't remember
Well, every studio album of Maiden (so far) has 2 singles...
+ 7th Son had three to four singles : CIPWM, TETMD, The Clairvoyant (live) and Infinite Dreams (live), the latter being released to coincide with Maiden England.A fair point to make but not technically true, there's quite a few exceptions in some areas.
(BTW: before I go any further, I'm not saying this to have an argument with you Kalata, I just enjoy talking about nerd shit )
Iron Maiden: Sanctuary was technically not on the album in the UK, so depending on what you want to count as being singles, you could either only have 1 single, Running Free, 2 singles Running Free and Sanctuary, or if we're counting non album track Sanctuary why not non album track Women in Uniform?
Killers: Twilight Zone was another non album track, and judging by the recent WOTW promotion, Maiden consider Purgatory as the first and therefore only single off Killers.
FOTD: Wasting Love was the third single in a lot of territories.
ARLO/ARDO - Only one single each off these
The X Factor - again a grey area as LOTF was only in limited territories and only on one format. It was obviously intended to be the proper 2nd single given the box that came with MOTE that allowed for space for the intended 2 CD release of the second single.
Best of the Beast - Only Virus
V XI - Futureal was again a watered down release, onto 1 format only and only available by mail order
Rock in Rio - Only Run to the Hills (Live)
DOD - 3 singles from DOD, Wildest Dreams, Rainmaker and No More Lies
The next few albums are a grea area: I don't consider promo/video only releases as proper singles per se, but they certainly serve the same purpose in promoting the album that old real physical singles did.
TFF - only promos but there was 3 of them, El Dorado, TFF and Coming Home
TBOS - promo only for Speed of Light but Empire of the Clouds had a real single
