Tea for the Tillerman is the fourth studio album by the singer-songwriter Cat Stevens.

Four of the tracks ("Where Do the Children Play?", "On the Road to Find Out", "Tea for the Tillerman", and "Miles from Nowhere") were featured in the Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins' black comedy filmHarold and Maude, in 1971. The track "But I Might Die Tonight" was featured in the film Deep End directed by Jerzy Skolimowski in 1970. Stevens, a former art student, created the artwork featured on the record's cover. "Tea for the Tillerman" was also used over the end credits for the BBC TV show Extras. "Miles From Nowhere" also appeared in the A-Team episode, "Alive at Five" while Templeton Peck is running away.

With "Wild World" as an advance single, this was the album that brought Stevens worldwide fame.[citation needed] The album itself charted into the top 10 in the United States, where he had previously had few listeners
