See Jethro Tull's haunting new video for "Mine Is the Mountain"

Ian Anderson and Co. share eerie clip for 'The Zealot Gene' single

Earlier this year, Jethro Tull released their first album since 2003, The Zealot Gene — and we’re all about it.

The album — which earned a spot in Goldmine’s Best Albums of 2022 So Far list — is a strong entry in the iconic British prog-rock band’s catalog that finds bandleader Ian Anderson exploring new themes and styles while still delivering an authentic Jethro Tull experience.

Today (July 22nd), Jethro Tull premiered a haunting video for album standout “Mine Is the Mountain,” which was created by Tom Hicks (who previously made the video for "Shoshana Sleeping").

"'Mine Is The Mountain' is, perhaps, a late-life partner to the 'Aqualung' album song 'My God'. I had, as usual, a strong visual reference at the core of the lyrics,” commented Anderson. “A miserable, committed trudge up Mount Sinai by Moses to face an angry maker before he must deliver the goods to his followers below is a powerful image, best imagined unless you are a wilderness trekker and much younger than I."
