Iron Maiden’s debut single Running Free
Originally shared by Mario Solis
„Running Free” is the #debut #single by #heavy #metal #band Iron Maiden, released on 8 February 1980 on the 7″ 45 rpm vinyl record format. It was written by Steve Harris and Paul Di’Anno. The song appears as the third track on the band’s debut album Iron Maiden (and the fourth track on its 1998 re-release). In 1985, a live version of the song was released as the first single from Live After Death (the band’s twelfth single). In 1990, the original single was reissued on CD and 12″ vinyl as part of The First Ten Years box, in which it was combined with the band’s next single, „Sanctuary”. The 1985 live single was also released as part of this box set, combined with 1985’s „Run to the Hills”.
