Roll Away Your Stone

Album: Sigh No More (2011)
  • Marcus Mumford and his band ruminate on grace and sin on their fourth single from Sigh No More. The song is influenced by Shakespeare's Macbeth. One line - "stars hide your fires, these here are my desires" - is almost directly taken from the play. In an interview with London's Evening Standard, Mumford said, "You can rip off Shakespeare all you like; no lawyer's going to call you up on that one."
