Jethro Tull's ongoing 50th anniversary celebration will include the release of two new career-spanning compilations — one that covers three discs and includes cuts from all of the band's 21 studio LPs, and another that distills their catalog into a single album.

The new Tull box, titled 50 for 50, surveys the group's long history with a roughly chronological track listing that was personally curated by frontman Ian Anderson. It's set to arrive in stores on May 25 — the same day as 50th Anniversary Hits, which condenses 50 for 50's sprawling overview into a single CD or vinyl LP. (A vinyl edition will be released on Aug. 31.)

Both sets will see release in the midst of Jethro Tull's 50th-anniversary tour, which sees Anderson and his current band paying tribute to the group's distinguished run. Look over the complete 50 for 50 track listing below, and check out dates for the Tull 50th anniversary tour right here.
