Iron Maiden's Music Given the Lullaby Treatment on New Album
Steve Thorne, Redferns
The Maiden collection follows similar Twinkle Twinkle recordings based on the music of Metallica and Motley Crue -- as well as a host of non-metal rock and pop acts -- and according to the company, the music "fills a vacant musical niche."
"There are other lines of pop music lullabies but we decided to take the approach of being high end musically rather than simply doing these as a novelty," the label says. "After all, just because the music is for a baby it doesn't have to sound unsophisticated."
Sleepy tykes are sure to appreciate the musical subtlety of 'Can I Play With Madness,' 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son' and, appropriately enough, '2 Minutes to Midnight.' Eddie the Head plush dolls sold separately.
