Accompanying the album announcement, Mumford today released a brand-new song and video, “Cannibal.” 

A word of warning: this raw, deeply personal song deals with trauma Mumford experienced as a child, so keep this in mind when deciding where and when to listen to it. 

Mumford released a (hand-written) statement about the song and the upcoming album. “Facing demons I danced with a long time in isolation, I wrote a song called ‘Cannibal,'” Mumford writes. The album, he continues, was produced by his friend Blake Mills and features Brandi Carlile, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo, and Monica Martin. 

 

The video, Mumford revealed a few days later, was directed by Steven Spielberg…yes, that Spielberg. And he shot it on a phone. 

(self titled) is due out on Sept. 16. 

Tracklist:
01. Cannibal
02. Grace
03. Prior Warning
04. Better Off High
05. Only Child
06. Dangerous Game (feat. Clairo)
07. Better Angels
