Since the release of Wilder Mind in 2015, and the collaborative Johannesburg EP in the summer of 2016, Mumford & Sons have found a rich, prolific vein of form in the writing for Delta. Where Wilder Mind harnessed a widescreen electric sound that seemed custom built to be belted back to them from the festival main stages, Delta loses none of that sense of scale, but couples it with an intimacy and jubilance that has so successfully combined to make Mumford & Sons one of the biggest bands of recent years. “Guiding Light” is the perfect example of that, a dizzying folk-rock song that builds, builds, explodes and then explodes again. An emphatic return.

Delta is a record of differing shades, colours and textures. A record that finds Mumford & Sons no longer young lads caught in a whirlwind, instead exploring that sense of adulthood and responsibility that comes of turning thirty and revaluating priorities. It’s a tender listen, introspective and reflective but is married with those ecstatic stadium-sized dynamics. It sounds like a career-defining body of work.

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of debut album Sigh No More’s release. It’s a record that lit the fuse on what has become an incredible decade for the band, littered with highlight upon highlight. Yet for all the awards they’ve since won across the globe, and the multiple numbers one records notched up in a variety of different countries, it’s taking their songs out on the road that continues to define them. The announcement of the album coincides with a huge sixty-one date arena tour, kicking off in November. Delta is a substantial, exciting record by a British band in the form of their lives.
