YUSUF ISLAM Roadsinger ( Island) THE artist.

YUSUF ISLAM Roadsinger ( Island) THE artist formerly known as Cat Stevens returns to upbeat pop with the album his fans longed for.

It's a joyful set of songs that harks back to his classic 1970s LPs. Yusuf's experience of prejudice informs a lot of Roadsinger, but the songs have universal appeal. He doesn't preach about his faith, and if you didn't know he was a devout Muslim, you might not be able to tell from listening to the album. Four of the standout songs - World Of Darkness, Be What You Must, This Glass World and Shamsia - will all feature in Moonshadow, the musical he's been working on for some time. JD
