LISTEN: Mumford & Sons - 'Blind Leading The Blind'

Aaaaand they're back. Granted, they haven't really gone away as they've been touring the world for several months, but it has been just over a year since Mumford & Sons last released new music, in the shape of their fourth studio album Delta. For bigs fans of the band who have heard the track at shows over the last couple of years, the release of Blind Leading The Blind has been hotly anticipated and it is finally here! The release brings with it a sense of some unfinished business being attended to.

While standing apart from the record, the track has its own history being a source point thematically for much of the album, as the band explained on a post online: " [it 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. 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. 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."
