"The River" is a song by Canadian rock band The Tea Party. It was released as a single in Australia and the UK, where it reached #79 in the UK Singles Chart,[1] #99 in Australia,[2] and was a promotional single in Canada and the USA.[3] The music video was shot in Toronto, directed by Floria Sigismondi and features a cameo by Roy Harper.[4]

"The River" was the band's first single and is a standard three-piece rock composition with a lot of Wah-wah pedal. An acoustic version with tar (lute), santur[disambiguation needed] and drums was recorded in August 1995 at Studio Morin Heights (Morin Heights) for Alhambra but appears as a B-side on the "Temptation" single and the European Triptych Special Tour Edition 2000 album.
