I really haven’t paid attention to the Mumford & Sons sensation over the last few years. I know the band has come out of nowhere to have two huge albums and some huge singles. It sounds like their last hit is now entering the country charts. It’s surely an attempt to connect the alternative pop band with the country world and it seems like it’s a natural fit.
Here is the video.
I Will Wait – Mumford & Sons
From what I can hear it seems like the song is a love song about waiting for the one you love. It’s either about that or maybe about waiting for the good things in life to happen. You’ll have to help me out with the interpretation of the lyrics. I’ll go with love song, but correct me if I’m wrong on that. Like I said I’ve been out of the loop with Mumford & Sons.
The song is catchy. The video is kind of a live version of the track and you can tell the crowd is really into it. Beyond that you can tell the crowd is huge. These guys are one of the biggest stories in music the last couple of years. They have this huge following and have been selling records like crazy.
It will be interesting to see how they do on the country charts. The sound of the song certainly fits well in country. I can see it doing really well since the new Billboard Country Songs chart is based on downloads and not only just radio airplay although there is a separate chart for that.
What do you think?
Will this be a big country hit?
Chart Estimate: #10
