Stone Sour are streaming their cover version of the Iron Maiden classic “Running Free.”

The song is set to feature on Corey Taylor and co’s covers EP, Straight Outta Burbank, due for release later this week as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday events.

Speaking to the UK’s Metal Hammer magazine recently, Taylor said: “If you’re going to cover something, you want to go for the best. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Maiden fan.

“’Running Free’ had the spirit of what we were looking for – it’s kick-ass, it’s driving, it’s got the Maiden guitar breaks.”
