To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Jethro Tull will be releasing a new compilation, 50 for 50, with songs selected exclusively by Jethro Tull’s founder, singer and flautist, Ian Anderson. The three-disc set is loosely arranged in chronological order to capture the band’s myriad musical phases. 50 for 50 boasts Jethro Tull’s early blues-influenced efforts like “Nothing Is Easy” and “Beggars Farm,” hard rock hits like “Aqualung” and “Locomotive Breath,” prog classics such as “Skating Away” and “Critique Oblique,” plus folk songs like “Heavy Horses” and “Songs From the Wood.”

Jethro Tull will also release 50th Anniversary Hits with a more select 15 tracks. A CD version will be released May 25th, alongside 50 for 50, while the vinyl version will arrive August 31st.

Jethro Tull recently kicked off a massive world tour to mark their 50th anniversary. The group has two North American legs planned, the first launching May 30th in Phoenix and wrapping July 7th in Montreal, while the second begins August 31st in Minneapolis and ends September 12th in Wallingford, Connecticut.
