The Comeback Cat?

Number 1 with a bullet?

He abandoned music for Islam, but the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens is now favourite to score the Christmas No.1 hit in the British charts after announcing a surprise comeback.
 
The singer, who changed his name to Yusuf Islam, was deported from the US last month after being denied entry on “security grounds”.

 

He was released without charge, and is now set to release his first pop single in 30 years. Islam, 56, who sold 50 million records in the 1960s and 1970s, has recorded a version of his 1970 hit Father and Son with Ronan Keating, the Irish former boyband star. Bookmaker William Hill has installed the song as 7-1 favourite to become the Christmas No.1 in Britain.

If someone told me that Cat Stevens had a new hit, I would assume he was trying to kill someone.
