Yusuf / Cat Stevens shared the video for “On The Road To Find Out.” The track will land on the reimagined, 50th anniversary edition of the legendary singer-songwriter’s iconic 1970 album, Tea For The Tillerman.

Cat Stevens wrote the at once fearless and at once vulnerable “On The Road To Find Out” after a battle with TB that sidelined the artist throughout 1968 and ‘69. The experience saw Stevens turning toward meditation and self-reflection. The singer-songwriter also drew inspiration for “On The Road To Find Out” from “The Secret Path” by Paul Brunton. The new Tea For The Tillerman² version sees Yusuf/Cat Stevens singing in a lower register and experimenting with R&B’s African desert influences, bluesy guitars and more.

Yusuf/Cat Stevens teamed up with directors Kimberly Stuckwisch (Billie Eilish, Thundercat, MØ) and Melora Donoghue of Invisible Inc. for the “On The Road To Find Out” visual.

“The video for ‘On The Road To Find Out’ is an allegory for humanity’s journey of self-discovery and the historical events, art, and music that have influenced life and culture,” as per a statement. “Stylistically, we are reminded of sci-fi classics such as Star Wars, Dune and even Mad Max with an added touch of magic realism.”
