2017 marks the 50th anniversary of his first success on the . The Laughing Apple reunites Yusuf with Paul Samwell-Smith, who produced Cat Stevens' best-known work of the '70s, as well as guitarist Alun Davies, whose acoustic guitar work was an integral part of those sessions.

The Laughing Apple is the fifteenth studio album by Yusuf/Cat Stevens. The album was released on 15 September 2017 by Cat-O-Log Records. It is Yusuf's fourth mainstream release since his return to music and his first one since 2014's acclaimed Tell 'Em I'm Gone. The album was produced by Yusuf/Cat Stevens & Paul Samwell-Smith. Its title is a reference to one of Cat Stevens' earlier hits, "The Laughing Apple" that was included in his 1967 album New Masters.

This truly is the return of Cat Stevens. The album captures the feeling I get when listening to his pre-hiatus works and the first playthrough put a big smile on my face. The only bummer is that it ends so quickly with just over 33 minutes of play.

Yusuf/Cat Stevens has released a new album marking his 50th anniversary in music, "The Laughing Apple," including several previously unrecorded songs he wrote at the outset of his career. An inescapable sense of foreboding runs through "Blackness of the Night," the opening track from "The Laughing Apple," the new album by Yusuf, aka Cat Stevens. It's one of several that Yusuf wrote when he was just starting his career as Cat Stevens, and has revisited or recorded, for the first time, on "The Laughing Apple. It's something of a temporal hybrid album that combines new versions of some of his earliest songs with recordings of a few of his most recent. The idea is that bringing the two together is a way to celebrate what is the 50th anniversary of a career that was launched at the tail end of 1966 with his first pop hit, "I Love My Do.

Yusuf/Cat Stevens releases his highly anticipated new album, The Laughing Apple, on September 15 under his Cat-O-Log Records logo, exclusively through Decca Records, the same label that launched his career 50 years ago. 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. There are some I always wanted to hear differently, he explains
