Rockabye Baby Iron Maiden, ‘Run to the Hills’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
It's time to run to the covers! That's because the folks at Rockabye Baby have chosen Iron Maiden as their latest subjects, taking some of their biggest hits and making them sleepy time lullabies. They've teamed with Loudwire to exclusively give you your first listen to their take on "Run to the Hills," which can be heard below.
There's not much about Iron Maiden that makes you think "sleepy," which is why its all the more impressive what the folks at Rockabye Baby have done with Maiden's catalog. How did they make melodic speed metal conducive for catching some zzzz's? By swapping out the twin guitars for xylophones, marimbas, wood blocks, bells and more.
Rockabye Baby's Lullaby Renditions of Iron Maiden features 12 reimagined Maiden classics, not only including "Run to the Hills," but also "The Number of the Beast," "The Trooper," "Flight of Icarus" and "Wasted Years" among others. There will be no need to wait until "2 Minutes to Midnight" as your little ones should drift off to dreamland not long after you hit "play."
