Mumford & Sons have just dropped a video for “Beloved,” their latest track from “Delta.” The clip tackles death and dying and follows a mother in a hospital gown as she spends the day with her son.
“Everyone knows loss in one way or another,”Marcus Mumford shares. “This song is about that. I’d never sat with anyone as they died before, and it had an effect on me. As it does everyone I know who has experienced it.”
He adds, “But there’s wildness and beauty in it as well, and a deep honoring, that became the beginnings of this song that we worked up called ‘Beloved.’ I feel determined for people to take whatever they want from it, and not to be emotionally prescriptive.”
