An upcoming book chronicling Jethro Tull‘s 50-year history will include new recorded material.
The band’s frontman Ian Anderson announced that “The Ballad Of Jethro Tull” will be published in November by Rocket 88.
Anderson said it has been on his mind to find an effective way of telling the Jethro Tull story, and “as we celebrate – in slight disbelief – our 50th anniversary, now seems as good a time as any to draw on the recollections of the very many musicians who played a part in Jethro Tull.”
The book, written by Mark Blake, will feature personal stories, previously unseen photos, behind-the-scenes snaps, memorabilia, original press clippings and album artwork.
There will be two editions of the book: the “Classic” version and the “Signature Edition.”
The Signature Edition includes a new Jethro Tull 7″ single featuring material recorded specifically for the project.
