Boycott the Fake Album “Without You”

14.01.09 Statement from Musician, Composer & Recording Artist, Sami Yusuf

Assalamu alaikom,

I have recently been made aware that my former record label has released what they claim to be my third album, which they are offering for sale on their website. I realize that this will be welcome news for many people, but my loyal supporters need to know that this album release is NOT taking place with my blessing OR my consent!

The tracks they have chosen to release are ‘work in progress’ and are almost entirely based on stolen mp3 demos that are far from complete and are certainly not of the high standard, lyrically, musically and technically, that I always insist upon. Consequently, for me to hear these incomplete and low quality recordings, that only represent a sketch of what I would wish to release for my discerning supporters, is painful beyond description. I therefore wish to make it perfectly clear that an album comprised of any such recordings could only be put on to the market against my wishes and without my approval.

Visitors to my new site will find examples of these inferior recordings side by side with samples of the improved versions that I’m in the process of creating. It’s still work in progress but clearly shows the difference in both content and quality. Listen to the tracks to judge for yourselves (Please note that the vocals are mere guides, and the demos are obviously unmixed and unmastered ):

WITHOUT YOU

‘Fake’ demo version released by AWAKENING Records, Jan 2009

Official Version, released by ETM International, Nov 2010

 

HE IS THERE

‘Fake’ demo version released by AWAKENING Records, Jan 2009

IN EVERY TEAR, HE IS THERE

Official Version, released by ETM International, Nov 2010

 

I need to explain that, for the past year, I have been in dispute with my former record label, the main thrust of my grievances being their total lack of transparency in dealing with me. I have made strenuous efforts to resolve the accumulated issues that I kept turning a blind eye to, all the while maintaining a measured, polite and dignified means of communication, but to no avail.

Personally, I’m able to cope with the aggravation that I’ve had to endure during this past year, but I will NOT tolerate my brothers and sisters and my many loyal supporters being cheated, lied to and made a mockery of. I urge you to BOYCOTT THE SALE OF THIS ALBUM!!! I can’t bear the thought of you shelling out your hard earned cash for music pretending to be my finest work, which it certainly isn’t! Equally unbearable is allowing these people who have abused my trust to profit from selling my music in a form that they know full well is incomplete and which, arguably, doesn’t even belong to them.

Please be patient. I am in the process of completing my album which will be ready in just a few short weeks and which I will make available at the earliest opportunity, but only when it is completed to my total satisfaction and which represents my musical, lyrical and spiritual hopes and aspirations for us all.

One thing that I have done, as a sign of my affection and respect for those many people of every nationality around the world that have supported me over these past years, is to prepare MY version of ‘Palestine Forever’ and provide it as a free download on my new website: samiyusufofficial.com

God bless you ALL

Wasalam

Sami
