British progressive rock luminaries, Jethro Tull, released their first studio album of new material in over 18 years, “The Zealot Gene,” earlier this year via Inside Out Music.
With the band now back out on the road in Europe, they recently added the fan-favourite new track, “Mine Is The Mountain” to their live set. To celebrate, a new video for the track has been commissioned, created by Tom Hicks who previously did the clip for “Shoshana Sleeping”.
Of the track, Ian Anderson comments: “’Mine Is The Mountain’ is, perhaps, a late-life partner to the Aqualung album song ‘My God’. I had, as usual, a strong visual reference at the core of the lyrics. A miserable, committed trudge up Mount Sinai by Moses to face an angry maker before he must deliver the goods to his followers below is a powerful image, best imagined unless you are a wilderness trekker and much younger than I.”
“The Zealot Gene” is available 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
