Mumford & Sons are pleased to share the video for their new single, “Guiding Light”.
Directed by Joe Connor (Sam Smith, Coldplay), the video was filmed outside the Tate Modernin London on 20th September, when the band performed an impromptu live set aided by a selection of their fans and passers-by alongside the River Thames.
A 100 strong group of fans were selected at random and invited down to London to meet the band. Information provided was scarce; there would be filming involved and fans would need to arrive in good voice. Following brief rehearsals, everyone descended onto the Southbank to film a live performance where the fans took the chorus. A video was made..
