Mumford & Sons have stayed busy over the past year touring in support of their third album, Wilder Mind. The album debuted at No. 1 in Canada and went on to achieve platinum certification status. Wilder Mind ended the year as the No. 10 Top Selling Album Overall in Canada and was the No. 9 Top Selling Vinyl in the country in 2015. The U.K. foursome also holds the honour of being the No. 8 Top Selling Artist Overall in Canada last year further showcasing the immense love and support the country has for the group.
Wilder Mind spawned three chart-topping singles on Canadian radio – current single Ditmas, The Wolf and lead track Believe, which spent five weeks at No. 1 on the Canadian Mediabase Alternative Chart.
Last month the band played a run of historic debut concerts in South Africa. The tour saw 85,000 tickets for six shows sell out in minutes and the February 2016 dates heralded one of the most talked about tours in South Africa in memory.
In collaboration with acclaimed Senegalese musician Baaba Maal and The Very Best, Mumford & Sons released a song, There Will Be Time, to coincide with the South African tour dates and saw it shoot to No. 1 upon release. They debuted the track live during a trio of Cape Town shows. There Will Be Time was recorded in September 2015 at Eastcote Studios in London and is a beautiful explosion of styles that builds, weaves and drives in spectacular fashion. Currently exclusive to South Africa, the track will be made available for purchase worldwide in the spring.
