Before finally finding success with the release of this song, the band toured extensively throughout Europe, and America, they also toured for several months as the backing band for the British Folk singer Laura Marling.To date Mumford & Sons have released four studio Albums between 2009-2018, and three live Albums between 2011-2016.

‘Little Lion Man’ was the debut single from Mumford & Sons taken from their 2009 debut Album ‘Sigh No More,’ with all four band members receiving song writing credits. In Australia the track was voted the years best song in that countries prestigious ‘Triple J’s Hottest 100,’ by the listeners of the Australian radio station ‘Triple J.’ Speaking about the song Marcus Mumford has said,’It’s a very personal story, so I won’t elaborate upon too much. Suffice to say, it was a situation in my life I wasn’t very happy with, or proud of, and sometimes when you can’t describe a feeling with your own words, it’s almost easier to express in a song. I suppose the song should stand on it’s own, and people draw their own interpretation from the words.’

‘But it was not your fault but mine, and it was your heart on the line, I really f….. it up this time, didn’t I, my dear, Didn’t I my dear.’
