"Brave New World" is the twelfth studio album by Iron Maiden released on 30 May 2000 (see 2000 in music). It marked the return of longtime lead singer Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith to the band who left the band in 1990, replaced by Janick Gers. It was also the band's first studio recording with three guitar players, as Gers stayed with the band after Smith's return.

The album art and title song are references to the novel of the same name written by Aldous Huxley. The upper half of the album art was done by Derek Riggs, and is the last new artwork done by Riggs to be used on an Iron Maiden release.

The songs "The Wicker Man" and "Out of the Silent Planet" were both released as singles. "The Wicker Man" was released in the U.S as a promo single with extra vocals in the chorus.

"The Nomad", "Dream of Mirrors", and "The Mercenary" were originally written for Virtual XI, according to Adrian Smith in an interview. He said there was a fourth song, but he didn't know which one it was and that Steve Harris did not remember either. It is likely that this is either The Fallen Angel or The Thin Line Between Love And Hate, or an unreleased song from the sessions, as the remaining songs have all been confirmed to have been written for Brave New World. Apparently, former singer Blaze Bayley also co-wrote "Dream Of Mirrors", but wasn't credited.

Brave New World Tour was the tour supporting the album.

The song "Brave New World" was covered in 2008 by Ghostlines (band) on the tribute CD "" released by "Kerrang!" magazine. [ [http://www2.kerrang.com/2008/06/maiden_heaven_track_listing_re.html Kerrang! Maiden Heaven Track Listing Revealed!] ]
