About Yusuf

Singer and songwriter Cat Stevens was one of the biggest stars of the 1970s, only to walk away from his fame at the end of the decade to pursue a more spiritual life. When he first re-emerged in the mid-'90s as Yusuf Islam, or simply Yusuf, he initially ignored the sort of music that had won him an international audience in favor of spoken word pieces and music specifically related to his Muslim faith. With 2006's An Other Cup, Yusuf adopted an approach that meshed the sound and style of his music as Cat Stevens with a more mature and spiritually oriented lyrical perspective, a path he followed again on 2017's The Laughing Apple. 2023's King of a Land blended the sound of his classic '70s work with concerns of the present day.
