Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford is reportedly gearing up to launch a solo career.

The new update comes courtesy of Page Six, who claim that the singer shared the news yesterday (June 20) while delivering a live set during a Spotify event on the French Riviera to mark the Cannes Lions International Festival Of Creativity 2022.

Mumford’s performance reportedly saw him performing new material for the first time, before telling the small crowd that it would soon be available to stream on Spotify.

While Mumford is yet to comment on those reports, he has recently hinted at a solo return in a series of videos on social media that see him working on new material in the studio.

It is currently unclear what this means for the future of Mumford & Sons, but last year saw the departure of banjoist Winston Marshall who faced criticism for praising the work of discredited right-wing US journalist Andy Ngo.

The group’s last album came in fourth record ‘Delta’ which was released in 2018.
