With more than 30 albums to their name Jethro Tull are considered to be one of the true innovators of prog rock. And with news of the band’s recent signing to InsideOutMusic/Sony, it appears their latest album – titled The Zealot Gene – will be hitting the shelves by early 2022.
“After 54 years in the world of music recording, it is with great pleasure that I now sign Jethro Tull to a record company which reminds me, in many ways, of the old Chrysalis label,” says vocalist/flautist/guitarist Ian Anderson.
“Here are real music guys with a passion for the best and most creative in rock music. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship and more releases to come.”
In the meantime, why not check out this classic clip of the band performing a rendition of “Locomotive Breath” from their 1971 album Aqualung…
