Iron Maiden have announced that they're releasing FROM FEAR TO ETERNITY: THE BEST OF 1990-2010 on June 6, via EMI.

Not only that but they are also releasing a special two-track promo-only CD single is being made available featuring ‘The Wicker Man’, which originally appeared on the album ‘Brave New World’ released in 2000 and was a UK Top Ten hit and ‘The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg’ which was the lead track from 2006’s A Matter Of Life And Death album.

Fans of digital and crate diggers will be pleased to know that the double CD will also be available as a download and on limited edition triple vinyl picture disc - (would it be too much to hope that one of these platters features a Derek Rigg depiction of Eddie The Head taking an axe to Tory prime minister David Cameron?)
