Mumford and Sons have not only taken their homeland of London by storm, but have gained a huge following in the United States. They’ve played huge festivals throughout the country, and Colorado was fortunate to have the closing days of their tour this summer before they headed home to record their second album.
Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases the talented band, Mumford and Sons, with their song, “Lover’s Eyes,” which is currently unreleased, but most likely will be on their upcoming album. The song was performed for iheartradio at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater in NYC on April 13, 2011.
Their debut album, Sigh No More, was simply a masterpiece, but with songs like the one featured today surfacing, the next album is set for the same, deserved, acclaim. Mumford and Sons are really coming into their own, they are writing lyrics with a depth that not only resonates, but forces listeners to truly listen to what is being sung.
These words find the page in “Lover’s Eyes,”
“Were we too young? And heads too strong?
To bear the weight of these lover’s eyes.
‘Cause I feel numb, beneath your tongue
Neath the curse of these lover’s eyes.
But do not ask the price I pay,
I must live with my quiet rage,
Tame the ghosts in my head,
That run wild and wish me dead.
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Oh, let me die where I lie
Beneath the curse of my lover’s eyes…”
