Cat Stevens is set to release his first modern pop album in 28 years.
It's been 28 years that now his fans could finally welcome Cat Stevens back to the music industry. The singer-songwriter is about to release a pop-music album in November this year.
The upcoming music project, tentatively titled "An Other Cup", will be distributed by Atlantic Records in North America in a venture with Stevens' own label, 'Ya Records.' It will, moreover, mark the 40th anniversary of the folk singer's first record, "I Love My Dog."
On his new album Stevens commented, "Today there are perhaps one hundred and one good reasons why I feel right making music and singing about life in this fragile world again. It is important for me to be able to help bridge the cultural gaps others are sometimes frightened to cross."
