Klaus Joins Yusuf on Songs for Charity
German artist and musician Klaus Voormann, known as the “5th Beatle” has recently been in London to work with Yusuf on two George Harrison songs. The tracks were completed at a studio near Notting Hill and mixing is currently taking place in preparation for imminent release.
The recordings, “The Day the World Gets ‘Round” and “All Things Must Pass”, feature Yusuf on vocals, 12-string, and acoustic guitar, Klaus Voormann on bass, Luke Potashnick on electric and acoustic guitars, Cassiano De Sa on electric guitar, Nikolaj Torp on piano/keyboards, and Kristoffer Soone on drums.
Proceeds from “The Day the World Gets ‘Roundâ€ will be donated to aid children and families in Gaza, and both tracks are to appear on Klaus Voormann’s forthcoming album, The Sideman’s Journey, later this year, the proceeds of which will be donated to an environment and health project in aid of the Oglala Sioux of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, North America.
