Is ‘Delta’ the Dawn of a New Era for Mumford & Sons?
Aside from keyboardist Ben Lovett looking like a stereotypical ’70s drug dealer who hangs around the disco on Thursday night before trying his pick-up lines on the ladies, it sounds like British folk rockers Mumford & Sons have a promising new single from a promising new album titled ‘Delta.’
Personally, the band’s previous album ‘Wilder Mind’ was incredible. The guitars and drums were louder when they needed to be and more controlled when they needed to be for a memorable music collection. The lyrics were fantastic and the album’s sound has staying power. Interestingly, the new single “Guiding Light” doesn’t definitively reveal a new daring sound. Nor does it confirm a return to past songs by Mumford & Sons.
And on the 14-track album ‘Delta,’ there will be plenty for us to listen to while our mind wanders to something deeply personal, imaginative and–dare I write it–wilder than what we’re expecting from Mumford & Sons?
We’ll find out on November 16 when the new album drops.
