Marcus Mumford is on his way to Norwich.

The sold-out show at the UEA on Friday, November 18, will be the fourth stop on Mumford’s UK and Ireland trek as he promotes his recent (Self-Titled) album.

He has won a whole bunch of gongs – including a couple of Grammys and an Ivor Novello Award – as a founding member and the frontman of Mumford & Sons, but (Self-Titled) is his debut solo offering.

The germ of the album came during the pandemic when Mumford wrote the lead track.

“In January 2021, facing demons I danced with a for a long time in isolation, I wrote a song called Cannibal,” he said.

“I took it to my friend [producer] Blake Mills, and we began the process of making this album, dear to my heart.”

The album includes collaborations with Clairo, Monica Martin, Phoebe Bridgers and Brandi Carlile.
