Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens) has entrusted his entire songwriting catalogue to BMG Publishing as well as various gems from the recording “Cat-O-Log’ with nine albums dating back to 1976.

The deal covers 185 songs written between 1965 and 2017.

Yusuf said, “We are happy to continue our relationship with the BMG family. I feel very at home and lots of new creative ventures will soon come to light through the ethical vision we share.”

Cat Stevens was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 by Art Garfunkel.

Alistair Norbury, President Repertoire & Marketing BMG UK said, “Yusuf has guaranteed his place in the pantheon of British songwriters over a period of 50 years. We are delighted that he has extended his relationship with us in this way.”

Peter Stack, EVP Global Catalogue Recordings said, “Cat-O-Log owns the rights to a significant body of Yusuf’s work, much of it unavailable for years. We look forward to working with Yusuf and his management, led by Yoriyos, to take it to a worldwide audience.”

Zach Katz, President Repertoire & Marketing BMG US said, “No other music company can offer the range of services provided by BMG and we are excited to work with Yusuf across the full range of his creativity.”

The most recent Cat Stevens album ‘The Laughing Apple’ was released in 2017.
