It's been four years since the last Mumford & Sons album 'Delta' was released - but if you're a fan of the band, it looks like you may be waiting a little longer for its follow-up.

However, you may be pleased to learn that frontman Marcus Mumford is striking out on his own and has announced his debut solo album.

It's called '(self-titled)' and will be released on September 16th.

The Londoner announced the album with a post on his social media that read:

"In January 2021, facing demons I danced with for a long time in isolation, I wrote a song called ‘Cannibal,'” reads Mumford’s note. “I took it to my friend Blake Mills, and we began the process of making the album, dear to my heart, called (self-titled)."

He went on to reveal that guests on the album will include Phoebe Bridgers, Brandi Carlile, Monica Martin and Clairo, and that it was produced by Blake Mills, a musician who has produced albums by Laura Marling, Perfume Genius and John Legend.

Mumford & Sons became a trio last year after founding member Winston Marshall left the band. Marshall had come in for criticism in 2021 after tweeting his support for controversial American journalist Andy Ngo and his book, which was critical of the antifa movement.

The first track from Mumford's solo album is set to premiere today at 5pm.
