Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson—recently elevated to "Prog God" by Prog magazine—is releasing his new album, Homo Erraticus [Calliandra Records], in the United States today. He also announced his North American tour.
In addition, Tull's 1973 album, A Passion Play, is being readied for an imminent re-release.
Homo Erraticus, based on an unpublished manuscript by amateur historian Ernest T. Parritt (1865-1928), is a wild mix of past, current, and future British history, as told by characters suffering from the delirium of malaria.
The U.S. tour will feature Homo Erraticus performed from start to finish, along with a selection of Tull classics.
