WORLDWIDE DELTA TOUR NOW UNDERWAY
Mumford & Sons’ new radio single “Beloved” is out today (listen/share HERE). Additionally, a new live video of the song filmed earlier this year at The World’s End pub in London can be viewed/shared HERE.
“Beloved” is the second single from the band’s new album Delta following “Guiding Light,” which reached #1 at both Alternative Radio and Triple A Radio (10 weeks). Released late last year to widespread acclaim, Delta debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, Americana/Folk Albums, Alternative Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts with 230,000 equivalent album units earned (stream/purchase here). This is the band’s third consecutive #1 debut, the largest sales week for an alternative rock album in 2018 and the sixth-largest debut among all titles last year (Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records).
The band is currently in the midst of an extensive 63-date worldwide arena tour including upcoming North American stops at Hartford’s XL Center, Lexington’s Rupp Arena, Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and Chicago’s United Center among many others. The band’s largest tour to date, the Delta Tour 2018/2019 includes over 800,000 tickets, which are now on sale via www.mumfordandsons.com/live. Of their recent sold-out show at D.C.’s Capital One Arena, the Washington Post proclaims, “The U.K. quartet thrilled a packed Capital One Arena crowd…” and went on to praise their, “…undeniably wondrous arena rock anthems,” while, of their sold-out concert at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, Billboard declares, “It’s exactly the kind of tour that will solidify their spot in the pantheon of arena-friendly bands.” See below for complete tour details.
Produced by Paul Epworth, Delta was written collectively by the band and recorded at London’s The Church Studios. The band recently debuted the album at a series of exclusive fan listening events. The screenings, which took place at theatres across the globe, featured the complete album audio accompanied by visuals curated in partnership with National Geographic. Of the concept, the band shares, “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. So, we felt it would be a nice idea to let fans experience the record in this way too.”
