Marcus Mumford releases ‘Better Off High’

Mumford wrote and recorded “Better Off High” with Blake Mills

Marcus Mumford shared his new single, “Better Off High.” Listen HERE. The song is from (self-titled), which will be released September 16 by Capitol Records. Mumford wrote and recorded “Better Off High” with Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Jim James), who produced the album.

While (self-titled) is Mumford’s first solo album, it’s still a deeply collaborative work that finds him working with vocalists and/or co-writers such as Brandi Carlile, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo, Monica Martin and Julia Michaels. Mumford speaks at length about the album in this GQ cover story. Fans who pre-order the digital edition of (self-titled) will instantly receive “Better Off High” plus the first single, “Grace” – a hit at U.S. Alternative and AAA radio that has already amassed over 1.6 million combined global streams – and album opener “Cannibal.”

His fall North American tour will kick off with a sold-out September 19 show at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. Tickets are on sale HERE for the headline run, which also includes a November 7 concert at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Shows in Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA; El Cajon, CA; Tulsa, OK; Milwaukee, WI; Madison, WI and Portland, ME are already sold out. Danielle Ponder will support from September 19 – October 14 and The A’s will open from October 17 – November 10 (except October 30).

Mumford is a founding member of Mumford & Sons. The band has topped the Billboard 200 with three of its four studio albums and won numerous awards, including GRAMMY®s for Album of the Year and Best Long Form Music Video, two BRITs and an Ivor Novello award.
