Originally issued in November 1986, "Stranger In A Strange Land" is the second single from Iron Maiden's sixth album Somewhere in Time which tells the story of an Arctic explorer whose body is discovered frozen in ice 100 years after his death. B-side "That Girl" was written for side project The Entire Population of Hackney with FM and Urchin. Derek Riggs' cover illustration displays Eddie the Head dressed in a homage to Clint Eastwood's character Man with No Name from Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy.
