The folk band and the Boss duet onstage at Pinkpop Festival
Springsteen was headlining Dutch festival Pinkpop and invited the folk mega-sellers up to sing with him during the encore of his 23-song set.
He had earlier performed a career-spanning set, with classics ‘Born To Run’, ‘Because The Night’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’ aired alongside a selection of new songs from his latest LP ‘Wrecking Ball’.
Mumford and Sons had earlier revealed from the stage at Pinkpop that they are set to release the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Sigh No More’ on September 24.
Frontman Marcus Mumford apparently told the crowd that the band had finished recording the album, before keyboard player Ben Lovett revealed their plan for an autumn release.
Mumford and Sons will stage two festivals this summer. The first event will take place at Huddersfield’s Greenhead Park on June 2, with Michael Kiwanuka, Willy Mason, The Correspondents and Nathaniel Rateliff also on the bill. The second will happen a week later on June 9 at Galway’s Salthill Park, with The Vaccines, Zulu Winter, Nathaniel Rateliff, Willy Mason and The Correspondents booked to play the event.
Bruce Springsteen tours the UK this summer, playing a stadium tour as well as headlining the Isle Of Wight and Hard Rock Calling festivals.
