Jethro Tull has announced a 40th-anniversary deluxe edition of their 14th album The Broadsword and the Beast, featuring demos, rough mixes, live recordings, studio sessions and new mixes from Porcupine Tree founder Steven Wilson.

The collection arrives on Sept. 1 and will be available as a five-CD, three-DVD "Monster Edition," a three-LP "Vinyl Edition" and digitally.

You can preorder it on Jethro Tull's website now and see the full track listing below.

Originally released in 1982, The Broadsword and the Beast blended Jethro Tull's signature folk-influenced prog with the dominant synth-heavy rock of the day. The band couldn't decide whether to name the album Beastie or Broadsword, based on the songs that kicked off each respective side of the LP. They ultimately settled on giving each side a title and identity, resulting in the joint album title.

Jethro Tull is still hard at work making new music. The Ian Anderson-fronted outfit released its 23rd album, RokFlote, in April.
