Marcus Mumford has announced an Irish date to coincide with the release of his solo album.
Marcus Mumford is planning to release his first solo album on September 16th, (self-titled). Along with its release, the Mumford & Sons frontman will partake of his first solo tour - starting in Ireland at the 3Olympia Theatre on November 28th, 2022.
His forthcoming album is being produced by Blake Mills, who has worked with Alabama Shakes. The project also features collaborations with phenomenal artists like Brandi Carlile, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo and Monica Martin.
Mumford & Sons are one of the most successful acts to come out of the 21st century's English folk-rock revival, armed with an agreeable fusion of bluegrass, folk, country, and rock found favour with audiences both at home and abroad when they released their debut album, Sigh No More in 2009.
Since then, the band released four more albums, with Marcus also working on the Ted Lasso scores individually.
Mumford has released the first track from self-titled, 'Cannibal', with an accompanying music video that's available to watch below.
The British-American musician wrote a note to fans earlier in the week.
"In January 2021, facing demons I danced with for a long time in isolation, I wrote a song called ‘Cannibal'. I took it to my friend Blake Mills, and we began the process of making the album, dear to my heart, called (self-titled)."I took it to my friend Blake Mills, and we began the process of making the album, dear to my heart, called (self-titled)."
Mumford & Sons fans fear not - the band has no plans to break up, according to Variety. Mumford initially wrote songs for the group, determining later that some of them should become a solo project instead.
Tickets from €33.50 (including booking fees) go on sale on July 21st at 9am.
