This beautifully animated video conveys a powerful ecological message and is a great accompaniment to a re-imagining of the classic song from 1970. Written over 50 years ago, it remains as relevant as ever as the lyrics warn of the problems facing the world. Yusuf / Cat Stevens explains: “Looking at the world today and the message in this fifty-year-old song, it looks like the world never grew up.” It’s taken from ‘Tea for the Tillerman² ‘, due on 18th September, on which Yusuf / Cat Stevens makes the familiar songs new and relevant for today. Take note.
