Yusuf / Cat Stevens, one of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time, will release his highly anticipated new album, 'The Laughing Apple!'
 
'The Laughing Apple' follows the common '60s template of combining newly-written songs with a number of covers – except that all the covers are from Yusuf's 1967 catalogue. 'The Laughing Apple' celebrates some of his earliest material, presenting the songs as he has always wished they had been recorded.
 
'The Laughing Apple's newest songs — "See What Love Did to Me," "Olive Hill" and "Don't Blame Them" — possess the reflective insight of a spiritual seeker and the melodic charm that made Yusuf beloved by millions during the ‘60s and ‘70s and still speak to a younger, wide-eyed generation.
 
Yusuf produced 'The Laughing Apple' with Paul Samwell-Smith, the original producer behind Yusuf's landmark recordings, including 1970's Tea for the Tillerman, which contained the classics "Wild World" and "Father and Son." That multi-platinum album became a benchmark of the singer-songwriter movement, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has named it one of the definitive albums of all time.
 
'The Laughing Apple' takes listeners to that little garden where the Tillerman sat under the tree, with a charming new illustration by Yusuf. That picture harks back to Tillerman's younger days when he worked as an apple-picker. Yusuf also has illustrated each of the 11 songs on The Laughing Apple in his naive style, resembling a storybook — for those whose hearts have never really grown old.
