Mumford & Sons have shared the first single from their upcoming album, Wilder Mind. Listen to the new song "Believe" above via YouTube.
Wilder Mind finds the band changing their sound from folk to an electric feel, and "Believe" is proof of that. Full sounding drums, synths, and sweeping electric guitar notes have Mumford & Sons sounding a bit like Coldplay. The accompanying video places the viewer on a motorcycle of sorts traveling through city streets before arriving to a destination similar to the Wilder Mind album cover. Fans will either embrace the band's new sound with open arms, or not. Only time will tell.
Speaking on the electrified direction of the band, Marcus Mumford told Rolling Stone:
By the end of our touring cycle that we finished in October 2013, we kind of had dropped some acoustic instruments and started playing with electric instruments and really left it there. Then we did a demo and then went to Aaron Dessner's garage in New York, in Ditmas, and it was really as a result of that song that we went away knowing that we'd come back to a certain sound. It didn't feel like a huge departure in some way, you know? It felt kind of natural to us. It sounds kind of like a jolt or something, but for us it was just where we were headed. We were never too heavily wedded to a certain type of instrument. It was more like a certain type of songwriting, but even that has changed a bit.
