Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson and Peter Gabriel bassist Tony Levin are among the guests on Hundred Year Flood, the new album by progressive rockers Magellan. The trio’s album is due out September 10 from Magna Carta Records.
Anderson plays flute on “Family Jewels,” an almost-six-minute instrumental that’s sandwiched between the album’s two main pieces-the nearly 35-minute suite “The Great Goodnight” and the 11-minute “Brother’s Keeper”-while Levin’s playing is featured throughout the album, joining session guitarists Robert Berry and George Bellas.
Magellan leader Trent Gardner sent the song’s tracks to Anderson in Scotland, with the two communicating via telephone as Anderson worked out his parts for the effort.
Magellan has not yet announced tour plans in support of Hundred Year Flood.
Jethro Tull is currently on a break from a North American tour that began in April. The next leg of the outing gets underway August 11 at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
Levin has revealed he’ll be on the road with Peter Gabriel later this year in support of Gabriel’s upcoming album, Up.
