Jethro Tull Announces First New Studio Album in Over 18 Years, “The Zealot Gene”



luminaries of British progressive rock JETHRO TULL have announced details of the group’s first studio album of new material in over 18 years. Originally making headlines in March this year, the group’s latest offering, titled “The Zealot Gene”, will see a release on January 28, 2022 on InsideOut Music. To give TULL fans their first taste of the new record, the band released the album’s first single, titled “Shoshana who sleeps”, accompanied by a stunning visual created by Thomas hicks. Check it out below.

A record that began to emerge in 2017, “The Zealot Gene”, in many ways, seeks to defy convention at a time when the profession of touring and recording artist has never faced more uncertainties.

TULLE conductor Ian anderson has no reservations about the role that myth and biblical storytelling themes played in the lyrical content of the new album, saying: still feel the need to question and draw sometimes ungodly parallels from the text. The good, the bad, and the downright ugly pitch their heads throughout, but are punctuated with elements of love, respect, and tenderness. “

Look back at the shattering disruption of the coronavirus pandemic, which ultimately ended the group’s tour plans and hopes for a 2020 release for “The Zealot Gene”, Anderson “It was so sudden. Amid concerns and warnings from the scientific community and a few more enlightened politicians, we all retreated in disbelief into our homes to await the end of the storm.”

“The Zealot Gene” will be offered in the following formats:

* Special edition digipak CD

* Gatefold 2LP + CD + LP-booklet

* 2CD + Blu-ray limited artbook

* Limited luxury artbook 3LP + 2CD + Blu-ray

Both editions of the art book feature a second CD of demos and initial ideas, along with extended sleeve notes and an interview with Ian anderson undertaken by Tim bowness.

The 3LP + 2CD + Blu-ray deluxe artbook comes on white vinyl and includes a third LP with raw demos. It also includes a slipmat and a numbered fine art print.
