Cat Stevens has returned and he’s serving more tea. Tea For The Tillerman 2 is, as the name suggests, the second version of his 1970 folk-rock classic, Tea For The Tillerman. The album was a bit of a hangover from the sixties. All the teenagers would spend their times up in their rooms trying to decipher the notes and play the songs on acoustic guitar as they flowed one after another in a river of instrumental elegance and profound disenchantment. It was a philosophical and politically charged album, a way of announcing that he was turning his back on the modern world in a quest for spirituality. A few years later Stevens converted to Islam, adopted the name Yusuf Islam and distanced himself from the world of pop music for almost 30 years. He returned to pop in the mid-2000s and is now celebrating the anniversary of his album, as Tea For The Tillerman is now 50 years old. And Cat Stevens is 72. Rather than re-release this old classic with some slight embellishments, the singer has given himself a makeover and re-recorded the whole thing. Joined by his guitarist and producer from the time as well as a handful of new musicians, Cat Yusuf recaptures the subtle and care-free sweetness of the original version but adds fullness and a slight punch that it sometimes lacked. The new versions are, at times, rather similar to the original versions (with the same string and choir arrangements), and at other times nothing like them (like on Longer Boats featuring rapper Brother Ali with its funky bridge), but their essence remains the same and they are certainly recognisable. Above all, Cat Stevens sings better than ever before – his voice hasn’t aged, and it’s no longer cast in the shadow of Bob Dylan as it was on the 1970 version of Tea For The Tillerman. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

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
