Mumford & Sons, "Guiding Light"

Mumford & Sons bring their music to the people who matter to them the most -- their fans -- in the music video for “Guiding Light,” out now.

In the black-and-white video, filmed in London on Sept. 21, Mumford & Sons invite their fans to join them in singing “Guiding Light.” What results is an uplifting demonstration of the ways music can bring complete strangers together.

“Guiding Light” is the new single from the band's upcoming fourth album, Delta, set to be released Nov. 16. Delta will be the band’s first release in more than three years, since their 2015 album, Wilder Mind.

Mumford & Sons were originally characterized by their use of the banjo and other acoustic sounds on their first two albums, Sign No More (2009) and Babel (2012), but ultimately ditched the instruments to head in a more alt-rock direction on Wilder Mind.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band confirmed that the acoustic instruments will be making a comeback on Delta, and will be incorporated with the new sounds they’re experimenting with.

With Delta, Mumford & Sons will also be delving into new subject matters. “We’ve all been much closer to birth and death,” frontman Marcus Mumford told Rolling Stone. “Which both feel f---ing wild to me, and most of the songs have been written about things like that.”

Along with the new album, Mumford & Sons will also embark on a massive 63-date worldwide tour this fall, their largest to date.
