Live Gig Video: Mumford and Sons and Baaba Maal perform ‘There Will Be Time’ in South Africa

Putting aside their leather jackets – for now, anyway – Mumford and Sons have revealed they’ve been working on a mini-album in South Africa with some high-profile collaborators. ‘Johannesburg’ is a set of new recordings the band did with legendary Senegalese musician Baaba Maal and The Very Best, who first came to more mainstream prominence in the Western world in 2009 with single ‘Warm Heart of Africa’, featuring Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig on guest vocals.

The mini-album was released in South Africa in January and was a rousing commercial success there. They’ve now shared a live performance they did with Maal, of the album track ‘There Will Be Time’, to drum up interest in the new album, which will be released worldwide on the 17th of June. You can watch the live performance below. The band (presumably minus their African collaborators?) will be headlining a summer BST show at Hyde Park on the 8th of July, supported by Americans Alabama Shakes and Dirty Hit alt-rockers Wolf Alice.
