Earlier this month (October 1), the singer performed the single “Grace” from his new album on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
In an interview about the album for NME, Mumford talked about how “Grace” was written about the moment he told his mother about the sexual abuse he experienced as a child, which is explored in the debut single and album opener “Cannibal”.
In a review of “(eponymous)” after its release in September, NME wrote: “While it is undoubtedly an emotional and often heartbreaking listening experience, it is also a record full of defiance, hope and faith. This shows that even after the deepest, most cutting trauma, one can somehow find peace and start all over again.
“Mumford recently told NME that writing this album ‘saved’ him; it will probably help save many others as well.”
