Mumford & Sons Premieres New Music Video for “Blind Leading The Blind”
- British folk rock band Mumford & Sons has unveiled a new video for their recent single, “Blind Leading the Blind”.
The vide was directed by Nick Davies and shot in a warehouse in Bangkok, Thailand.
“Working with Nick Davies made the process of making this video an absolute privilege,” frontman Marcus Mumford said in a statement. “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.”
The band debuted the song at Hangout Music Festival 2017 in the public beaches of Gulf Shores in Alabama in 2017.
Since then the band performed the song on their tour, finally released the song back in October. It is their first music since the fourth studio album “Delta” (2018).
- “’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,” Marcus Mumford said of the track.
“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,” Mumford added. “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.”
