Jethro Tull's new album "The Zealot Gene" is planned to drop on January 28, and they have dropped a second single from the album in the form of a video.
Frontman Ian Anderson says "'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 U.K., 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?”

Jethro Tull is gearing up to release their first new album in 18 years, “The Zealot Gene.” The band is giving fans a preview with a new song, “Shoshana Sleeping.”
"While I have a spot of genuine fondness for the pomp and fairytale story-telling of the Holy Book, I still feel the need to question and draw sometimes unholy parallels from the text,” says frontman Ian Anderson about the inspiration behind the new album. “The good, the bad, and the downright ugly rear their heads throughout, but are punctuated with elements of love, respect, and tenderness.”
Jethro Tull started working on the new record as far back as 2017, winding up with a 12-track album that’s due for release January 28th, 2022. Pre-order your copy of “The Zealot’s Game” HERE.
