Yusuf / Cat Stevens shared the video for his reimagined rendition of “Wild World.” The song appears on Tea For The Tillerman², out now on UMe.

The re-styled album arrived on September 18 of this year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Yusuf/Cat Stevens’s landmark 1970 album, Tea For The Tillerman. As he has done with previous Tea For The Tillerman² releases, the legendary singer-songwriter shared a video for the reimagined “Wild World.”

“The brilliantly eccentric style of the new video combines elements of Wes Anderson, Casablanca and Bugsy Mallone,” as per a press release. The statement also detailed the song itself: “With its Tango lilt, Berlinesque accordion and smooth clarinet lines, this new cinematic reworking of ‘Wild World’ is recognized as one of the biggest stylistic departures on the new album.”
