Yusuf Islam has released a new song for charity.

Video: He Was Alone - Yusuf/Cat Stevens #YouAreNotAlone

“I’ve just returned from a visit to southern Turkey and a camp on the Turkish/Syrian border in Gaziantep,” said the singer. "People here have lost their homes and are waiting for peace to return, but the children still remain bright and hopeful. The visit was much appreciated and they sang for me. A beautiful human experience.

“I have written a song dedicated to a child of the road which will be released together with a video for charity next month: ‘He Was Alone’. My hope is to open people’s hearts to the sadness experienced by thousands of young souls whose voices are not heard in the clamour created by the politicians and the media in the midst of the refugee crisis, generated by the wars and conflicts blazing through their homelands.”

Yusuf will also be performing a special concert for his charity, Small Kindness, in London on June 14. More info and tickets are available here.
