Ian Anderson - releases new CD Homo Erraticus to coincide with tour‏

Ian-Anderson-Jan-14-thumb

Legendary prog pioneer Ian Anderson has announced the imminent release of new studio album Homo Erraticus. The record will be out on 14th April on the artist’s own label imprint Calliandra Records in conjunction with Kscope, to coincide with Anderson’s 2014 UK tour.

In 1972 Jethro Tull released iconic concept album Thick As A Brick, based on a poem by child prodigy Gerald Bostock; in 2012, as fans wondered what happened to Bostock, Ian Anderson explored the different paths his life might have taken in Thick As A Brick 2. With Homo Erraticus enfant prodigy Gerald is back for real.

Following a 40 years’ political career, Bostock reunited with Anderson taking the role of tour manager on a string of shows. ‘Homo Erraticus’ marks his return to songwriting, and it’s based on an unpublished manuscript by amateur historian Ernest T. Parritt (1865-1928).

In Homo Erraticus Parritt examines key events of British history with a string of prophecies stretching to the current day and the future; visions of past lives caused by the delirium of malaria generate the characters through whose eyes the stories are told, including a nomadic Neolithic settler, an iron Age blacksmith, a Christian monk, a turnpike innkeeper and even Prince Albert.

The album release will be followed by an extensive UK tour, where Homo Erraticus will be performed in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics updated with video and theatrics..

Ian Anderson recently won The Prog God Award from Prog Magazine, celebrating the innovators of rock who have inspired generations and carved a way for others to be at their creative best. There is no one who has pushed the boundaries more than Ian Anderson, who to this day remains immersed in his love for the music.

Fronting seminal Prog outfit Jethro Tull and as a solo artist, Ian Anderson has performed in more than 54 countries over 45 years; he is widely considered an icon of the genre and he’s recognised as the one who introduced the flute to rock music.  With over 60 million albums sold in their career, Tull have been characterised by Anderson’s trademark acoustic textures, created with ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments. In his most recent solo shows, Anderson has played with orchestras, string quartets and featured soloists. His eclectic acoustic performances are also a hit with fans of the genre.
