I will never forget one of the greatest sets I’ve ever witnessed Bonnaroo 2011, when Mumford & Sons played to the most packed Which Stage I’ve ever seen: blasting through almost the entirety of Sigh No More, exciting the crowd with Babel tracks that weren’t to be released until over a year later, and one of my all-time favorite concert moments, when they encored with a cover of “Amazing Grace” as they brought out members of Old Crow Medicine Show, Apache Relay, guitar-slide master Jerry Douglas, amongst others. Hot damn.
Anyway, the band had been playing “Lover Of The Light” live for well over a year before it’s release, so it’s great to see a song that was debuted over a year ago finally get a video!
The Wire‘s Stringer Bell stars as a blind man, in the gorgeously-filmed video for an equally gorgeous song. It looks like Mumford & Sons have done it again!
In related news, the band just announced a few East Coast tour dates, including one at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
