Yusuf / Cat Stevens recently shared a newly recorded cover of George Harrison‘s iconic song “Here Comes the Sun.”
It marks the first release since Yusuf / Cat Stevens entered into a partnership with Dark Horse Records, the boutique record label founded by Harrison and currently operated by his son Dhani and David Zonshine.
The release coincided with what would have been the late Beatles guitarist’s 80th birthday.
Speaking about Harrison’s profound influence on his own musical and spiritual journey, Yusuf said, “I’m happy to sing one of his songs, especially as it represents the returning of light and hope to a seriously dark and broken world.”
In welcoming Yusuf/Cat Stevens to the Dark Horse Record label, Dhani Harrison said, “I’m thrilled to welcome Yusuf/Cat Stevens to the Dark Horse Records family. Not only is Yusuf a great musical legend but his songs could not fit the Dark Horse mythos any better.”
Yusuf has already teased that a brand new Yusuf / Cat Stevens album is coming. Dark Horse Records will be re-releasing seven legacy albums from the Yusuf / Cat Stevens catalog, owned by Yusuf’s own Cat-O-Log Records company. DH Merchandise will also operate the Yusuf / Cat Stevens official store.
