Sami Yusuf’s new album (the GENUINE album) has now been in the making for over 2 years. It will be a cross-over album with more focus given to the English language. Sami has experimented with different styles in this album and by his own admission is “very proud of what it is becoming…It’s definitely the best work I have done (lyrically and musically) to date and I hope it’s going to be blessed…”
Sami has collaborated for the first time with singer-songwriter Conner Reeves (http://www.connerreeves.com/) whose hits include “My Father’s Son” among others… He has written for many stars in the past including Joss Stone and Rod Stewart and is currently busy working on his own album. Conner has extended his beautiful talent in order to write lyrics for several of Sami Yusuf’s forthcoming tracks. “It’s such a blessing to work with Conner” Sami says, “he totally feels where I am coming from and he’s among the few songwriters out there who I truly respect because he’s versatile, deeply spiritual and VERY talented…”. As always, Sami produced, composed, arranged and wrote ALL the songs (with the exception of Conner’s contribution) and is working tirelessly to get it ‘right’. Stay tuned for more updates!
