Jethro Tull stream The Third Hoorah

Jethro Tull have launched a video to accompany The Third Hoorah from their 40th anniversary edition of War Child.

It follows exclusive streams of unreleased track War Child II and the Orchestral War Child Theme via TeamRock.

The four-disc set includes a new mix by Steven Wilson, promo footage plus music and a script synopsis from the abandoned film, which was intended to accompany the original release in 1974. Mainman Ian Anderson has written detailed sleeve notes for the pack’s 80-page booklet.

War Child: The 40th Anniversary Theatre Edition is on sale now as a 2CD/2DVD set, while the new stereo mix is available separately. A limited-edition 180g vinyl pressing follows on January 13.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
