Mumford & Sons are to release their next single, ‘The Wolf’, impacting on 29th June 2015. ‘The Wolf’ is the second single to be taken from the band’s critically acclaimed, number one album, ‘Wilder Mind’. The record that introduced a new direction for the band, and ‘The Wolf’ is a fine example of that gritty, but sonically expansive new sound.
‘Wilder Mind’ is Mumford & Sons’ third album. Recorded in London and produced by James Ford, it debuted at number 1 in the UK, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Australia, and Ireland. A number of the new songs were written and demo’d at Aaron Dessner’s (The National) garage studios in Brooklyn.
This Summer, Mumford & Sons follow their US tour dates with a handful of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the US and UK, interspersed by performances at Summer festivals across the US and Europe, including their headline slot at the Reading and Leeds Festivals.
Joining the band over the Stopovers will be the likes of The Foo Fighters, The Flaming Lips, Ben Howard, Primal Scream, The Vaccines, Simian Mobile Disco, The Maccabees, My Morning Jacket, Alabama Shakes, Dawes, and Jenny Lewis. For full line-up details, see below.
