This November, Mumford & Sons will release a new album titled Delta, and have shared a music video for the first single. Listen and check out "Guiding Light" above on YouTube.
Beginning with acoustic guitar strumming and mellow vocals, the track gradually swells to an emotional peak. Mumford & Sons first gained popularity as a group heavily steeped in folk music, and have progressed toward pop-rock in recent years with electric guitars and drums coming to the forefront of the sound. What makes "Guiding Light" noteworthy is that the band continue their evolution by embracing elements of pop and electronic dance music, with a driving rhythm and dynamic production. It has been three years since the quartet released their last studio album, but it sounds like they have not lost any inspiration in their songwriting.
The black-and-white video was shot in London. We see the band performing the song in an intimate outdoor setting to a crowd of smiling fans singing along and enjoying the performance. On the YouTube page, the band shared that "it was an absolute joy singing together, celebrating the start of this new journey and everything that is to come!"
Delta is scheduled for release on November 16, 2018. Pick it up on Amazon.
