Mumford & Sons have shared their new track, ‘Blind Leading The Blind’.
Arriving with a video directed by Nick Davies, it marks the band’s first new music since the release of their 2018 album ‘Delta’.
Marcus Mumford says of the clip: “Working with Nick Davies made the process of making this video an absolute privilege. Given our long history of work together, it was a complete joy to be under his direction again.
“We wanted to access the nature of the song, including some of its anger, introspection and even self-flagellation. A drum kit and an old sweaty laundry in Bangkok while on tour provided all we needed.”
Of the song, he adds: “Blind Leading The Blind has been a song we’ve had up our sleeves for some time, which ended up being a catalytic song for much of our work on Delta, its themes and feelings, but that we never got round to finishing in time to put it on the original release.
“We’re proud that we’ve finally finished it, as it feels like one of the most challenging songs, thematically, that we’ve put out there, both for ourselves and our audience. It feels it’s becoming harder and harder to coerce yourself into a listening, present and unafraid disposition, but that’s the gauntlet we’re throwing down for ourselves.”
