Jethro Tull recently shared a video for the title track of their upcoming album, The Zealot Gene.
The British rock group’s first studio album in more than 18 years, The Zealot Gene is set to be released on January 28 on Inside Out Music.
The video was directed by Iranian film-maker Sam Chegini, who previously created a clip for “Sad City Sisters.”
Commenting on the title track, Jethro Tull bandleader and primary composer Ian Anderson said, “The title track offers many allusions to the radical, politically-charged world of populism in leadership.”
“As a song lyric, it sums up, for me, the divisive nature of societal relationships and the extreme views which fuel the fires of hate and prejudice, more so today perhaps, than at any time in history,” he added. “Perhaps you think you know who I might have been thinking about here but, in reality, there are probably right now at least five prominent, dictatorial national figures who could fit the bill.”
