We've compiled a playlist of 5 of our favourite Mumford & Sons songs that we hope we'll hear during their set at the Apple Music Festival.
Little Lion Man
The band's first single which leaped them into worldwide success. Released in 2009, the single peaked at Number 1 in the US - but only made it to Number 24 in the UK. Either way, we're hoping that this high-energy piece will make it into the set and will let the band go back to their roots.
I Will Wait
I will wait, I will wait, for you... This was the first track that we truly fell in love with - off of the band's second album 'Babel'. Until then, Mumford & Sons were relatively unknown to the general public. When this song hit the radio, sales boomed and we all came to know the sound we love today.
Lover of the Light
As if the music video, which is co-directed by and stars Idris Elba, isn't enough of a reason - the vibes created by this track are too much to not be featured. The harmonies in the chorus, the chords on the guitar and banjo... this is a near-perfect hit for Marcus Mumford and Co.
When their latest album 'Wildest Mind' was released, we were all told to expect something different. The banjos were gone and they were added 'electric elements' to their music. We were nervous for sure, but when lead single 'Believe' was released our worries were put at rest. It's a vibey, 'lighters in the air' style song which we adore.
Mumford & Sons' slower songs, such as Snake Eyes, cannot be forgotten. The way the track builds up only to fall down afterwards, it's a musical fairytale of love. It's truly one of the songs which have cemented Mumford & Sons in music history.
