British folk rock group Mumford & Sons collaborate with Senegalese singer Baaba Maal in their newest hit, "There Will Be Time." A heartfelt performance of the tune is available to watch above, via YouTube.
The 10-minute interview below, conducted by Apple Music's Zane Lowe, is quite engaging, featuring Mumford keyboardist Ben Lovett talking about the process of writing and recording the song in South Africa.
What makes this collaboration very special, is the objective behind it. Mumford and Maal come together to demonstrate unity through music. The song and the performance itself is tremendously empowering, and is a must see for fans of the band. The stylistic blend of Western-African pop and alternative folk rock contrast, but also compliment one another to create something truly unique.
If this doesn't put you in a good mood, I don't know what will. The song is outright awesome, and I love how the musicians express themselves on stage.
"There Will Be Time" will be on Mumford and Sons' next album, Johannesburg, available on June 17th, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
