White Blank Page by Mumford & Sons

Album: Sigh No MoreReleased: 2009
  • This is the fifth single by London-based folk-rock quartet Mumford & Sons, from their debut studio album, Sigh No More. During this song, a broken-hearted Marcus Mumford appears to be singing to his former lover: "Where was my fault / in loving you with all my heart?" and her new conqueror: "Can you lie next to her / and confess your love?" However, there is a more spiritual element to the track as well. In interviews Mumford has talked about how in many of the songs he's singing about his reluctance at giving all of himself to God, even though he knows it's what he needs to do. In this song he concludes, "Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life."
  • Marcus Mumford penned this tune about romantic frustration early in his career when he was doing session work for Laura Marling on her debut album, Alas I Cannot Swim. Marling was called away to do some interviews, leaving Mumford alone in a studio booth for an hour and a half, during which he sat and wrote this lovelorn song.
