More information: The new album from Jethro Tull frontman! In 2012 Ian Anderson released ‘Thick As A Brick 2’, the follow-up to Jethro Tull's legendary concept album. The album was a critical and commercial success, charting around the world. He returns with ‘Homo Erraticus’, his new studio album.
The original ‘Thick As A Brick’ album, released in 1972, was based around the poem of disgraced child prodigy Gerald Bostock. For ‘Homo Erraticus’ Anderson is reunited with Bostock, using lyrics written by Gerald based on an old historical manuscript. The manuscript examines key events from throughout British history before going on to offer a number of prophecies for the future. Suitably dramatised and exaggerated by Bostock as metaphors for modern life, he presented Anderson with ideas for 14 songs, which have now been set to music. The result is Homo Erraticus.
