Jethro Tull have announced that the band’s new album, The Zealot Gene, will be released early next year. No more details about the album have been revealed.
The Zealot Gene will be Jethro Tull’s first music since signing a contract with the label InsideOutMusic/Sony Music.
Speaking about the new tie up, the progressive rock legends’ lead singer Ian Anderson said, “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 – both as an independent and in its later years in partnership with EMI.”
“Here are real music guys with a passion for the best and most creative in rock music,” he added. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship and more releases to come.”
InsideOutMusic Label Manager Thomas Waber said, “Adding Jethro Tull to the roster is an incredible honor for us. The band is true innovators of the genre and we are looking forward to working with them on their new album. We are sure their countless fans will be as excited about it as we are!”
With more than 30 albums to their credit and sales totaling more than 50 million, Jethro Tull are one of the most successful rock bands with a catalog that contains all-time great classics.
Besides Anderson, the British band currently consists of guitarist Joe Parrish-James, guitarist Florian Opahle, drummer Scott Hammond, keyboardist John O’Hara and bass guitarist David Goodier.
