Back To Earth 40th Anniversary Box Set Track Listings

    Back To Earth 40th Anniversary Box Set Track Listings

    We are delighted to be able to announce the tracklistings for the upcoming 40th anniversary re-issues of Back To Earth.

    Long overdue for re-evaluation, Back To Earth is a brilliant and fascinating album capturing Yusuf / Cat Stevens at a defining point in his life.

    “Now,” as he said at the time of his departure from the music world, “I’ve come down from the stars.”
