Yusuf/Cat Stevens released a new music video for “Wild World” today, in honor of his recent 50th anniversary rework of the album Tea For The Tillerman².
The reimagined “Wild World” music video keeps the song’s lighthearted nature, as a few kids play a game of cards and sip milkshakes. As it continues, it gets slightly more abstract, shifting to different scenes set in space and real-life footage of planes flying.
Yusuf/Cat Stevens said in a statement about the new video:
The film shows how much we need art to direct our thoughts sometimes towards inexpressible goals; to relive early childlike innocence and keep our eyes of hope open beyond the clouds of war and material darknesses.
