For those Mumford and Sons fans in Europe who have been feeling left out for a while the wait is now over as the band announce a mega-tour of mainland Europe. They have also released a stunning new video for ‘Lover of the Light‘ which you can watch below. It was filmed around the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast in Wales. The video has surprised many as it stars and was directed by Idris Elba who you have to acknowledge has done a magnificent job and provides an intense and moving performance. I won’t spoil it for those who have not seen it yet.
Mumford & Sons when asked aout the video explained “We are, quite obviously, huge fans of Idris Elba’s acting work, as pretty much anyone can agree he’s the most badass British actor since Richard Briars. So we trusted him as the director for our latest video.
“We’ve been fortunate to work with some great directors in the past, but we’ve always been uncomfortable with the process of making music videos. We’ve never really enjoyed being in them, unless they involve live performance.
“Talking to Idris and Dan about making a video that we’re not in made it a lot more fun to think about. They went off and wrote the treatment after our ale-infused conversation in a pub in London, and what they directed, we are proud to present as: Lover of the Light.”
