Here is a description of the release from Wikipedia:
In early 2005, Yusuf released a new song entitled “Indian Ocean” about the 2004 tsunami disaster. The song featured Indian composer/producer A. R. Rahman, a-ha keyboard player Magne Furuholmen and Travis drummer Neil Primrose. Proceeds of the single went to help orphans in Banda Aceh, one of the areas worst affected by the tsunami, through Yusuf’s Small Kindness charity. At first, the single was released only through several online music stores but later featured on the compilation album Cat Stevens: Gold.
