Mumford & Sons: "Ghosts" (Live)
Mumford and Sons, ‘Ghosts’
The return of Mumfordmania is imminent, as the British quartet have been road-testing an album’s worth of new material ever since the release of their 2009 breakout debut, Sigh No More. Most notably, “Home” and “Lover’s Eyes” picked up on the promise of early material by offering plenty of sing-along arrangements and evocative moments primed for an even wider audience. Now comes “Ghosts” — according to Ben Lovett, or “Ghosts That We Knew,” if it’s up to Marcus Mumford — via a recent live performance on Radio 104.5. By the looks of things, no sophomore slump is in sight. Hear the tune above.
Video: Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe, Old Crow Medicine Show Cover Woody Guthrie
Along stops of their recent Railroad Revival Tour, Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show have been teaming up for an ecstatic hoedown of a closing number: Woody Guthrie’s “This Train Is Bound for Glory.” In the clip above, VH1 caught up with the folk-rock super-troupe next to some Austin, Texas train tracks for a nearly 7-minute, raucous rendition, in which Jade Castrinos (who kills it, as usual, at 3:45), Marcus Mumford, Alex Ebert (complete with evangelical-tinged dance moves), and friends trade lead vocals between sing-along choruses.
