Home ~ Mumford & Sons

mumford-and-sons-bb11-2015-billboard-04-650Mumford & Sons are an English folk rock band. The band is made up of Marcus Mumford (vocals, guitar, drums, mandolin), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion), “Country” Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, dobro), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass). Although the band members have claims on certain instruments, the members switch instruments during live shows according to convenience, for they each play a variety of instruments. The band formed in late 2007, rising out of London’s folk scene with other artists such as Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn, Jay Jay Pistolet and Noah and the Whale.

The band has often supported Laura Marling at concerts, while their association with Noah and the Whale can be traced back to St Paul’s School, Barnes and King’s College School, Wimbledon. Mumford and Lovett attended King’s College School alongside Noah and the Whale bassist Matt Owens, while Marshall attended St Paul’s School along with Charlie Fink, lead singer of Noah and the Whale.

Their latest new tune, a love song from the road speculatively titled ‘Home’ by fans, has been debuted on summer tour dates and for an in-studio performance on Colorado radio station KBCO in Denver. The song was written during a sound check and is currently referenced as “home” on the concert set lists, it had been rumored that the band changed its name to “Holland Road” for their recently released album, Babel, but that wasn’t the case.

The song still remains unreleased.

Home – Mumford

I ran away in floods of shame
I’ll never tell how close I came
As I cross the Holland road
You went left and I went right
As the moon hung proud and white
You would of loved it here tonight

Spin me down just to pin me down
On the cover of this strange bed
Spin me down just to pin me down

Roll out your questions keep them down
Let the water lead us home
And I was sorry for what I’d done

You were young I was not old
And our story was not told
But torn apart by greedy hands

Spin me round just to pin me down
On the cover of this strange bed
spin me round just to pin me down

Spin me round just to pin me down
I’ll be gone by the nights end
Spin me round just to pin me down

But I’ll be home in a little while
Lover I’ll be home
And I’ll be home in a little while
Lover I’ll be home

And I’ll be home in a little while
Lover I’ll be home
And I’ll be home in a little while
Lover I’ll be home
