The Simpsons theme song has gotten increasingly experimental in the show’s twilight years (see: the thoroughly weird one from the season premiere) and this week, they paid homage to Cat Stevens, now Yusuf Islam, by playing Stevens’ “Tea For The Tillerman” from the 1970 album of the same name instead of the show’s regular theme. The Simpsons even provided their own take on the lyrics and album cover. Islam is set to release his first album in five years at the end of the month and embark on a worldwide tour shortly after. Watch below.
Here’s the original album artwork:
Yusuf Islam’s new album Tell ‘Em I’m Gone is out 10/27 via Sony Legacy.
