Watch Mumford and Sons Perform Three Tracks on ‘The Daily Show’
Wrapping up this week's tapings of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart were none other than Mumford and Sons. Marcus Mumford and company played two tracks for the studio and television-viewing audience -- "The Wolf" from their latest LP, Wilder Mind, and "The Cave" from 2009's Sigh No More -- and even gave a web-exclusive performance of their new album's lead single, "Believe." You can check them all out in the video player above.
Stewart grabbed a few minutes with Mumford and guitarist Winston Marshall ahead of "The Cave" to talk about the band's upcoming Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Festivals, set to kick off in New Jersey in early June. Succinctly summing it up, Mumford told Stewart, "We go to little towns that are a bit out of the way and we take over the towns." You can find more information on the Stopover events here.
Wilder Mind marks Mumford and Sons' third full-length effort, and their first since 2012's multi-platinum Babel. It is currently available via Glassnote Records on digital and CD formats, as well as a standard 12" vinyl edition and special 7" collectors box set; grab details on the disc at the band's official website.
