Mumford & Sons are sharing the latest visual from their Johannesburg EP, a collaboration with Senegalese legend Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Cape Town outfit Beatenberg for which we just hosted the NYC pop-up exhibitions at Okay Space last week.
The new music video for “Wona,” the second official clip from Johannesburg, follows all the mini-album collaborators to stadiums and beaches across South Africa, Senegal, Malawi, the United States, London and Margate, Kent.
While it’s Beatenberg’s singer who holds down the main vocal parts, Baaba Maal steals the show here when he comes in around the 1:30 minute mark.
In an interview with Okayafrica about the EP, Marcus Mumford said of the song:
“’Wona’ came about from us getting to Cape Town, picking up some instruments together. And then starting to write. And Matt [from Beatenberg] came over to my hotel, and we wrote some lyrics and some chords together, some ideas we both had. And then we took it to the lads in Joburg and we played it for them, and it became a thing.”
Watch the video for “Wona” above. Johannesburg is available now.
