Mumford & Sons and National Geographic Team to Make Wildlife Videos for “Delta” songs
Leading up the release of their new album, Delta, Mumford & Sons held a series of listening events in movie theaters that paired the songs from the record with wildlife visuals curated by National Geographic. If you were unable to attend the exclusive events, you’re in luck — the visuals are streaming now via Mumford’s YouTube.
Each song on Delta is accompanied by a unique video showcasing different parts of nature, including footage of lions, cheetahs, buffaloes and bears.
“While we were recording and mixing Delta, we watched a lot of films on silent including some pretty epic wildlife films by National Geographic — like a vision-track to our soundtrack,” Mumford said of the project. “So, we felt it would be a nice idea to let fans experience the record in this way too.”
Delta, featuring the lead single “Guiding Light,” is out now. Mumford & Sons will launch a U.S. tour in support of the album December 7 in Philadelphia, followed by a performance on Saturday Night Live December 8.
