Marcus Mumford has announced he has a new solo album on the way, titled simply (self titled). The album will drop Sept. 16.
This is Mumford’s debut solo album. The most recent album he released with his band Mumford & Sons was 2018’s Delta.
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.
On Sunday 3rd July in a high school gym in New York, Steven Spielberg directed his first music video, in one shot, on his phone. Kate Capshaw was the almighty dolly grip. pic.twitter.com/9KUvONG4u3
