This is a cover version of Joni Mitchell’s, “Free Man in Paris” that was originally released on her 1974 album Court and Spark.  This track can be found on a 2007 tribute to Joni Mitchell compilation.   Stevens kept only the lyrics and let the words inspire him to write a new arrangement and melody for the song.  Stevens has stated that with his cover he “decided to conjure up a party song, with strings and trumpets and trombones and vibraphones marching in a parade down the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, all lit up with fireworks.”
