Listen to Noah Kahan’s “Wild World” only on Amazon Music:
“Cat Stevens was the first artist I ever fell in love with. ‘Father and Son’ was the first song I ever played live,” explains Kahan. “My dad and I played it at an old folks home when I was in the 3rd grade. Cat Stevens has been a fixture in my life for so long, and when Simone Felice (another massive Cat fan) and I had an opportunity to cover a song, Cat Stevens was the obvious choice.” He continues, “We chose ‘Wild World’ because it is the most immediate and classic song in Cat’s immensely classic discography. I recorded remotely and tried my best to make it as raw and unfiltered as possible. I truly hope we have created something that would make Cat proud.”
Since signing to Republic Records at age 20, Noah Kahan has nearly a billion combined streams and views online, received a gold plaque for his breakout hit “Hurt Somebody” with Julia Michaels and sold out headlining tours around the world. Releasing his full-length debut Busyhead in 2019, Kahan captured the attention of press including Billboard, Entertainment Weekly and NYLON, and performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Late Night With Seth Meyers and The Today Show. In 2020, he released Cape Elizabeth, an intimate EP recorded during quarantine that showcases his folk-inspired storytelling. Kahan recently teamed up with mxmtoon for “Pride,” a stunning and timely duet that Atwood Magazine called “a beautifully bittersweet acoustic pop song blending the loneliness of isolation with the raw pain of rejection.”
