Mumford & Sons will host listening events at movie theatres across North America this Thursday, November 15, allowing a select group of fans exclusive access to their fourth studio album, Delta, on the eve of its release. These screenings—held in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and Toronto—will feature the complete album audio accompanied by visuals directed and edited by Caleb Bardgett, Johnny Dunn and Kees van Dijkhuizen and curated in partnership with National Geographic. Of the concept, the band shares, “While we were recording and mixing Delta, we watched a lot of films on silent including some pretty epic wildlife films by National Geographic—like a vision-track to our soundtrack. So, we felt it would be a nice idea to let fans experience the record in this way too.” Jill Cress, CMO of National Geographic, adds, “We are excited to have played a part in inspiring Mumford & Sons latest album and look forward to teaming up with the band to bring audiences a unique musical and visual experience they’ll never forget. By pairing the work of some of the world’s most talented filmmakers and photographers with the sounds of these award-winning musicians, we hope to give people an even greater appreciation and understanding of the planet and the importance of protecting it.”
