Homo Erraticus website launched, album samples available
The official website for Ian Anderson’s upcoming album ‘Homo Erraticus’ has launched. You’ll find audio samples, a photo gallery, videos and more. The record will be out on 14th April on Calliandra Records in conjunction with Kscope, to coincide with Ian 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.
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 Homo Erraticus marks his return to songwriting, and it’s based on an unpublished manuscript by amateur historian Ernest T. Parritt (1865-1928).CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE HOMO ERRATICUS WEBSITE
