Three years ago, Mumford & Sons took a turn with their music as they went with a full electric rock setup instead of the more acoustic instrumentation (read: banjos and acoustic guitars). Today we have our first taste of what's next from the band as they shared "Guiding Light" from their upcoming album Delta. You can hear a little more of the acoustic instrumentation returning but it's still a big sound from the band. It's an anthemic song from the band as it builds to a crescendo at the end with Marcus putting his full passion into the vocals.

The band also plans on sharing a massive 60 date tour on October 4th that will take them into 2019. In Southern California, the band will headlines Ohana Fest in Dana Point next Sunday, September 30th.

Their new album Delta will be released on November 16th.
