Iron Maiden dedicate a new song to the late, great Robin Williams


Robin Williams has been honoured in a new song by Iron Maiden.

The metal band, who release their first album in five years in September, have dedicated one of the tracks to the late actor, who committed suicide in August 2014 after a long battle with depression.

Frontman Bruce Dickinson explained: “My favourite song is one I didn’t write. It’s ‘Tears of a Clown,’ which talks about Robin Williams. I ask myself how could he be so depressed when he always seemed to be so happy.”

The Book of Souls is out September 4 through Parlophone Records.
