Jethro Tull stream unreleased track War Child II

null

Jethro Tull have streamed previously unreleased track War Child II via Prog, from the upcoming limited-edition 40th anniversary edition of their classic 1974 album.

The three-disc package includes a new mix by Steven Wilson plus music and a script synopsis from the abandoned film which was intended to accompany the original release.

The movie, set to star Leonard Rossiter, was shelved after the band failed to secure funding. Instead, War Child was released as a standard 10-track album.

The anniversary edition also features 10 orchestral soundtrack pieces of which only one has been previously released – War Child Waltz appeared on the 2002 reissue. Tull mainman Ian Anderson’s sleeve notes appear in an 80-page booklet, which also carries a movie synopsis.

War Child: The 40th Anniversary Theatre Edition is released as a 2CD/2DVD set on November 24, while the new stereo mix will be launched on CD the same day. A limited-edition 180g vinyl pressing follows on January 13.
