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, infant prodigy Gerald is back for real.
