Mumford & Sons' "Lover of the Light" Is Our Music Video of the Day

Gary Pini

The Wire
's Idris Elba stars in and co-directed this clip for Mumford & Sons' "Lover of the Light" from their #1 album Babel. The British actor and part time DJ/rapper/ soul singer delivers a somewhat head-scratching role as a blind man who awakens in a beautiful house in the country, gets dressed and sets off running through the woods and almost goes over a cliff.  The plot may be vague, but the mood is perfect for the song.
