Opeth’s Next Album Will Feature Cameos From Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson


Opeth have recruited some prog rock royalty for their next studio album. The Swedish death metal turned prog rock outfit enlisted Jethro Tull‘s vocalist, flautist, etc. Ian Anderson to perform on several tracks from their upcoming fourteenth studio album. Anderson revealed the news recently to ‘Mystery Tour Radio Show‘, offering:

“Well, from time to time I play on other people’s records, if they’re interesting to me. I just did — last week I played on three or four tracks from a prog metal band called [Opeth]. [They’re] Swedish.”

This collaboration follows a past failed attempt by Opeth vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt to get Anderson to appear on the band’s 2011 release, “Heritage“.
