    The Zealot Gene- Jethro Tull

    Ian is releasing his first new music under the Tull moniker in 19 years I guess it is since The Christmas Album in "The Zealot Gene", pre-orders will be going live on November 5th for a release date sometime in February 2022. Having everything ever released by Ian/Tull I'll definitely give it a listen but based on TAAB 2 and HE I'm not expecting another original TAAB or anything remotely similar, haha.

    Pretty shitty since you asked, a shirtless Ian in shadow is the best they've got?

    Some teasers have been posted on Facebook. The classic Tull flute sound is there, but Ian's voice sounds really bad--weak and hoarse. The snippet of vocal melody we hear is simplistic and chant-like, but maybe that will sound better in context.

    Hopefully there aren't any Costanza-style bear rug photos in the inside of the booklet.

    Kind of idiotic cover concept: instead of doing new album as Ian Anderson he returns to name Jethro Tull and celebrates that with cover art that is filled with his face and nothing else. Ok...

    For anybody who wants to see the lyrics of Shoshana Sleeping ..here they are fresh from THE Jethro Tull f/b group
    "Shoshana Sleeping"

    Sleep: the time's not yet
    Early birds soon crowing
    Wake when dawn declares
    Woman risen from childish airs
    I watch, across the room
    Dancing shadow, torch outside
    Lights path down cobbled lane
    Which I have walked, will walk again
    Sweet field lily, sweet Shoshana
    Names to conjure fragrant danger
    Fingers tremble, trace the line
    From nape to sacrum down the spine
    Poisoned prize a trophy
    Freely taken, hardly won
    A minute, holds back hours
    Bud emboldened, forest flowers
    Moist under my hand
    She sleeps; breath comes quickly
    A sigh parts silky lips
    Soft-swell breasts, proud golden tips
    Sweet field lily, sweet Shoshana
    Names to conjure fragrant danger
    My fingers tremble, trace the line
    From nape to sacrum down the spine
    Sweet sadness fills my heart
    Offered chances best not taken
    Unsullied, no vain glory:
    Chapter, verse, another story
    Brushed eyelids gently closed
    Beauty framed in dawn-light
    Savoured moment blessed
    A kiss, farewell, and leave to rest
    Sweet field lily, sweet Shoshana
    Names to conjure fragrant danger
    My fingers tremble, trace the line
    From nape to sacrum down the spine

    It is not bothersome but Ian has completely found a new home with this melodic/folky vocal pattern he has been using since TAAB 2 and Homo Erraticus that I find less appealing than the rock vocal tone that I so much admired from the 70's and 80's. A matter of opinion. This could be one of the reasons he had Ryan O'Donnell alternating lead vocals for the TAAB I & II tours.

    I have been listening to Jethro Tull since 1971 and I could easily identify blindfolded if an Ian Anderson vocal is from the 70's from the one he sings now. I prefer the older one but he's too old to rock 'n' roll

    I don't know if its the voice range - but the melodies all sound the same these days, sadly. Playing is lovely of course.

    Still writing intelligent lyrics I see! Be interesting to see what new music sounds like.
