Yusuf / Cat Stevens has announced that his seventeenth studio album, King of a Land, will be released via BMG / Dark Horse Records on June 16.
King of a Land is an epic body of work. More than a decade in the making, its 12 new songs are full of extraordinary surprises.
Unique and transportive, Yusuf’s new music, words and melodies paint a vivid picture of a world which embraces the lost lands of truisms and stainless youth, and brings it into touching distance.
His poetical storytelling invites the listener on a journey towards the gates of an alternative universe to that which we presently inhabit – where happy endings can possibly happen.
“Looking at the jagged journey of my music, beginning as I did in the 60’s, I would say this new record is a mosaic. A very clearly defined description of where I’ve been and who I am,” said Yusuf / Cat Stevens.
He recently shared the album’s closing track, “Take The World Apart,” alongside an accompanying animated lyric video created by Peter Reynolds.
King of a Land is available for pre-order in a gatefold format with a 36 page booklet featuring illustrations by Peter Reynolds at https://yusufcatstevens.lnk.to/KingOfALandWE. The CD also features a booklet illustrated by Reynolds.
An exclusive white vinyl edition of the album and exclusive merch is available from the official Yusuf / Cat Stevens online store.
