Monday, 30 November 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Haim, Feist, Passenger and Jack Johnson are among 40 artists confirmed to celebrate the music of Yusuf Cat Stevens during a special online event.

Catsong Festival will present performances from a variety of musicians covering tracks by the legendary singer-songwriter in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his influential 1970 LPs 'Tea For The Tillerman' and 'Mona Bone Jakon'.

The show is free and will get underway on December 5 at 8pm GMT/12pm PT via Stevens' official YouTube channel. Other acts set to perform include Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Matt Sweeney, Dave Matthews, James Morrison and Brandon Boyd. Check out the full line up below.

Stevens said: "It's great to see and hear these covers of my songs given new life. There's no better honour for a songwriter than to have his songs performed by talented musicians with such love and sincerity. Thank you."

As part of the celebrations, deluxe 50th anniversary editions of 'Mona Bone Jakon' and 'Tea For The Tillerman' will arrive on December 4, following up a re-recorded and reimagined version of the record, 'Tea For The Tillerman²', which landed earlier this year.

Earlier in November, Stevens shared an unearthed video for Lady D'Arbanville, the minimal opening track from 'Mona Bone Jackon'.

He returns to Scotland in August 2021 for a rescheduled headline show at Glasgow's Kelvingrove Bandstand.
