“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,” Cat Stevens said in an official statement.
The official statement also described the album and shared more details about the new work. “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,” The statement said.
