With a voice barely affected by the passing of time, Steven Demetre Georgiou a.k.a. Cat Stevens a.k.a. Yusuf Islam remains a true master of folk. Celebrating a career that spans half a century, he releases an album combining original compositions and reinterpretations of some of his most famous songs. With the help of his old accomplice and producer Paul Samwell-Smith (he was already involved in Mona Bone Jakon and Tea For The Tillerman in 1970!), his oh so personal and unique sound that made him so successful finds a new light. In Laughing Apple, Yusuf evokes his travels and shares the teachings of a life well lived with those who weren’t yet born when he started out. © CM/Qobuz
