Marcus Mumford Uses Neil Young’s Advice

Marcus Mumford says when making his solo debut, (Self-Titled), he took to heart some advice from Neil Young.

Mumford tells NME, “Neil Young sat me down about 10 years ago and told me the importance of recorded music and that I should pay more attention to the way in which we record, because I was always [like], ‘Ah, it’s just an advert for a live show.’ He was like, ‘No man, these things last’…

 “I felt like on this record, I listened to that [advice]. I paid closer attention to the way it sounded than anything I’d ever done before.”

(Self-Titled) is due out on Friday.
