Description

The Laughing Apple

Yusuf / Cat Stevens has debuted “Blackness Of The Night,” which will appear on his highly anticipated new album, The Laughing Apple, out September 15 under his Cat-O- Log Records label exclusively through Decca Records. “Blackness Of The Night” aches of lost innocence, as Yusuf alludes to doomed child soldiers, broken families, and waning hope atop elegiac organ and Yusuf’s plaintive guitar. Says Yusuf to Entertainment Weekly: “”Blackness Of The Night” was one of my first protest songs for the 60’s. Growing up in London after the War, the memories were strong and bombed ruins still riddled the City. “Blackness Of The Night” reflected the feeling of emptiness wandering the streets at night alone, pondering how to survive in a dark unknown future. It’s got a lot of relativity to the

situation of many refugee kids today, lost and abandoned, finding themselves separated from their families and homes in a hostile world.” The song was originally recorded 50 years ago for Yusuf’s 1967 album ‘New Masters’ but flourishes in a lush new arrangement shared exclusively with Entertainment Weekly.
