Mumford & Sons have shared the video for their new single, Guiding Light

Directed by Joe Connor (Sam Smith, Coldplay), the video was filmed outside the Tate Modern in London on 20th September, when the band performed an impromptu live set aided by a selection of their fans and passers-by alongside the River Thames. A 100 strong group of fans were selected at random and invited down to London to meet the band. Information provided was scarce; there would be filming involved and fans would need to arrive in good voice. Following brief rehearsals, everyone descended onto the Southbank to film a live performance where the fans took the chorus

A video was made…

Guiding Light is the first single to be lifted from Mumford & Sons’ fourth album Delta. It was produced by Paul Epworth and recorded at London’s The Church Studios

In celebration of the album, the band will embark on an extensive 63-date worldwide arena tour this year, featuring a groundbreaking in-the-round stage design. The tour kicks off in Dublin next month on 16th November, the same date as Delta is released. See below for complete tour details….
