Jethro Tull's Martin Barre Announces New Solo Album

(Classic Rock) Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre has named his sixth solo album Back To Steel - and he's designed it as a celebration of his five-decade career. The follow-up to last year's Order Of Play is released on September 18, and includes his take on Tull tracks Skating Away and Slow Marching Band, plus a cover of the Beatles' Eleanor Rigby.

Barre says: "This CD is my most important work in my career as a musician. I feel my songwriting has matured to a point that makes it totally accessible to all audiences."

He adds: "I want this music to be the basis of everything I do from now on - my criteria were that It would work live in a powerful way and keep our identity as a blues-rock band.

"As always, I've put in small quotes of music that give light and shade to the album." Read more here.
