British Progressive Rock Luminaries JETHRO TULL recently announced details for the group’s first studio album of new material in over 18 years! Originally making headlines in March of this year, the band’s newest offering, titled ‘The Zealot Gene’, will see a January 28th, 2022 release on Inside Out Music.
They have released the video for the albums second single ‘Sad City Sisters’, directed by Iranian film-maker Sam Chegini who previously created a clip for the much-loved classic ‘Aqualung’. Watch the video now here:
Ian Anderson comments of the track: “Sad City Sisters throws up memories of a Saturday night in Cardiff, Wales when I was on my way home from our concert in St David’s Hall some years ago. It could equally well have been any town in the UK, I suppose, or even most cities of the Western World. What possesses hell-bent and vulnerable young people to slip so easily into that tragic loss of dignity and end up sprawling drunk in a wet and windy street at midnight?”
The Zealot Gene will be offered in the following formats:
– Special Edition Digipak CD
– Gatefold 2LP+CD+LP-booklet
– Limited 2CD+Blu-ray Artbook
– Limited Deluxe 3LP+2CD+Blu-ray Artbook
The Deluxe 3LP+2CD+Blu-ray Artbook comes on white vinyl and includes a 3rd LP with the rough demos. It also includes a slipmat and a numbered art print. The blu-ray includes a 5.1 surround sound mix by Jakko Jakszyk (King Crimson).
