"Rainmaker" is the 37th single released by Iron Maiden. It is the second single from their 13th studio album Dance of Death. The song was largely written by long-time guitarist Dave Murray. The rainmaker concept was started by vocalist Bruce Dickinson who one day said in the rehearsal studio that the intro riff made him think about raindrops. The song has no connection with the 1995 novel written by John Grisham of the same name. The guitar solo on "Rainmaker" is played by Dave Murray.
The cover is a still taken from the music video directed by Howard Greenhalgh. This single also contains a double-sided poster.
"More Tea Vicar" is a recording of a jam session (similar to "Pass the Jam") with Bruce Dickinson trying his hand at rapping.
