It features 10 brand-new studio recordings, including five original tracks and five carefully-chosen cover songs. Tell ‘Em I’m Gone, features musical contributions from Richard Thompson, blues harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite, singer-songwriter Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Tuareg group Tinariwen, and guitarist Matt Sweeney. The album was produced by Yusuf and Rick Rubin and was mixed by Yusuf and Paul Samwell-Smith.
“The album harks back to the great days of R&B and black wax records,” says Yusuf. “The message continues to be relevant in as much as it is a call for Freedom from the bondage we all tend to get caught up in.”
