Mumford and Sons have dropped a new video supporting their latest album, Babel. Taking notes from Sigur Rós, the English folk collective have nabbed another character from The Wire for ”Lover Of The Light”. Stringer Bell, aka Idris Elba, stars and makes his directorial debut (alongside Dan Cadan) in the video about a blind man who finds true happiness in the light. As we follow him throughout his morning activities, a somber and reflective Marcus Mumford strains, “Watch me stumble over and over.” It’s pretty stuff, having been filmed in Pembrokeshire, Wales, which should offer solace to those looking for English coastal towns. Watch it below.
In related news, Mumford and Sons will release, The Road to Red Rocks, a new concert film due out November 26th in the UK, November 30th in Australia and New Zealand, and on January 22nd in North America.
