Mumford and Sons Show Off Their Live Musicianship in ‘I WIll Wait’ Video
The ‘wait’ is finally over! Four months after releasing ‘I Will Wait‘ to radio, Mumford & Sons are trying their hand at the country genre, sending the bluegrass-infused rock track and its accompanying music video to country outlets.
The clip, directed by Fred & Nick, serves as a promotional piece for the London-based band’s ‘The Road to Red Rocks,’ a 90-minute DVD package that chronicles the live shows leading up to their concert at the famed Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Red Rock, Colo. The live video best exemplifies the Mumford & Sons’ reputation as some of the most talented and well-respected musicians in the industry.
Zac Brown Band also used the famed rock venue as the backdrop to their visually stunning 2011 video, ‘Keep Me in Mind.’
‘I WIll Wait’ is Mumford & Sons first offering from ‘Babel,’ their second studio album that shifted more than 600,000 copies in its debut week earlier this year. The track, which is arguably more ‘country’ than a majority of what’s played on country radio today, is nominated for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance at the upcoming 2013 Grammy Awards.
