Jensen Communications just announced that Jesse Colin Young released a new single and music video, “Trouble” which features his daughter, Jazzie Young. The father / daughter duo is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Harold and Maude with the release of their rendition of the Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) soundtrack hit, “Trouble.”
Jesse states, "I have lived with this song in my heart for decades and through many times of trouble. My daughter Jazzie Young thought I wrote it because I would sing it often,” said Jesse Colin Young. “I am delighted to have her sing this with me, as it’s a dear friend to both of us. Thank you, Yusuf Islam, for this gift. And thank you Harold and Maude for bringing it to us in visuals. Happy 50th!”.
“‘Trouble’ was the song that introduced me to Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens). My dad used to play it a lot when I was younger, so it feels like such a cool full circle moment to be able to sing on this record with him,” echoed Jazzie Young.
Jesse Colin’s Young is a pioneer of American roots music for more than half a century, he has left a unique mark on the intersecting worlds of folk, blues, jazz, country, and rock & roll. As the frontman of the Youngbloods, he immortalized the ideals of the Woodstock generation with "Get Together," an international hit that called for peace and brotherhood during the turbulent 1960s. During the decades that followed, Young expanded both his audience and his artistic range, releasing a string of solo albums that mixed socially conscious lyrics with top-tier guitar skills and gorgeous vocals. An acclaimed songwriter, singer, instrumentalist, producer, label owner, podcast host, and longtime social/environmental activist, he has established a permanent place in America's musical landscape, while continuing to make modern music that's every bit as vital as his work during the counterculture era.
