Jethro Tull - New Album On The Way, First Single Streaming

Veterans Jethro Tull are pleased to announce their 23rd studio album, RökFlöte, set for release on the 21st April 2023 via Inside Out Music. Following 2022's The Zealot Gene, the band's first album in two decades, Ian Anderson and the band are returning with a 12-track record based on the characters and roles of some of the principle gods of the old Norse paganism, and at the same time exploring the RökFlöte - rock flute - which Jethro Tull has made iconic.

Ian explains the album’s title & theme in more detail: "The title of this offering went through a little change or two along the way. I started with the idea of a predominantly instrumental album for rock flute - as in rock music. When the subject material of the album presented itself, I was drawn to the term Ragnarök from Norse mythology - their version of apocalyptic end times or Biblical Armageddon. The "final showdown" scenario is ubiquitous and inherent in Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, for example. Ragnarök translates as “destiny of the Gods”, the rök part meaning destiny, course, direction. With umlaut firmly in place, courtesy of the Germanic origins of Old Norse, Flute became Flöte in keeping with the spelling. With me so far? I just can't miss the glorious opportunity for a good and legitimate umlaut."

if they use the flute?! it would be weird if there was no flute, after all it's their trademark.

I liked the song, better than I expected.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.
