Mumford & Sons Leave a Trail of Clues in “Lover of the Light”

Mumford & Sons’ latest video, “Lover of the Light,” seems to be asking fans to find their own meaning. The beautiful, dream-like clip leaves much to the imagination and was directed by British actor Idris Elba, who also stars as a man talking to himself over a lonely breakfast, running wildly through the woods and appearing to channel the spirit of a deer. Who’s he talking to? Did he leave something important behind when he left the house? What’s the significance of the song title? See if you can piece the story together.
