Video of the Moment #1028: Mumford and Sons

Mumford and Sons‘ current single ‘Lover of the Light’ has a pretty cool video: it’s a mini film starring and directed by actor Idris Elba. I’ll let the band take it from here:

We are, quite obviously, huge fans of Idris Elba’s acting work, as pretty much anyone can agree he’s the most badass British actor since Richard Briars. So we trusted him as the director for our latest video.

“We’ve been fortunate to work with some great directors in the past, but we’ve always been uncomfortable with the process of making music videos. We’ve never really enjoyed being in them, unless they involve live performance.”

“Talking to Idris and Dan [Cadan, acclaimed script writer] about making a video that we’re not in made it a lot more fun to think about. They went off and wrote the treatment after our ale-infused conversation in a pub in London, and what they directed, we are proud to present as: ‘Lover of the Light.'”

Mumford will also release a live DVD, ‘The Road To Red Rocks’, on the 26th of November through Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records.
