The Red And The Black is the fourth track from The Book of Souls, which is the sixteenth studio album by  Iron Maiden, released in 4 September 2015. It is the band’s first studio double album, and also their longest to date, with a total length of 92 minutes and 11 seconds.

Produced by long-time Iron Maiden collaborator Kevin Shirley, The Book of Souls was recorded at Guillaume Tell Studios, Paris from September to December 2014, which they had previously used for 2000’s Brave New World. The band wrote and immediately recorded many tracks in the studio, resulting in a spontaneous live feel.  In addition to being their longest studio record, it also contains the band’s longest song to date, “Empire of the Clouds”, at 18 minutes in length, which was also issued as a single for Record Store Day on 16 April 2016. While not a concept album, references to the soul and mortality are prominent, realised in the Maya-themed cover artwork, created by Mark Wilkinson.

A critical and commercial success, The Book of Souls topped the album charts in 24 countries. It earned the band their fifth (first consecutive) UK No. 1, following 1982’s The Number of the Beast, 1988’s Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, 1992’s Fear of the Dark and 2010’s The Final Frontier. In the US, it matched The Final Frontier‘s success on the Billboard 200, repeating the group’s highest placement at No. 4 until it was surpassed by 2021’s Senjutsu at No. 3. At the time of its release, The Book of Souls marked the longest gap between studio releases in the group’s entire career; at five years, following The Final Frontier.
