Jethro Tull continues to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their 1971 Aqualung studio album this year. On Friday, the famous prog-rock band fronted by Ian Anderson released a new animated video for the album’s well-known title track, which sticks close to Burton Silverman‘s darker watercolor art seen on the album cover.
In addition to shots of Anderson added into the mix, the new animated video highlights imagery ranging from that infamous character sitting on the park bench in shabby clothes, refugees, warzones, vultures, and more.
The video was directed by Sam Chegini, and featured additional contributions from concept artist Hassan Nozadian.
Watch the band’s new animated video for “Aqualung” below.
