Marcus Mumford Reveals Career ‘Contingency Plans’

Remember those days when you were little and your teachers would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew-up? Things like racecar driver, astronaut, and even a rock star might have been an answer at some point in time. Then, they would tell you that it was not a “very likely” dream and to pick something a little more “realistic.” Well, it look like even rock stars who sell-out arenas sometimes think like that.

During a recent interview with the United Kingdom’s The Big Issue, Mumford and Sons frontman, Marcus Mumford, somehow got onto the subject of what he would do if he was no longer in a big band. According to Mumford, he would be either a teacher or a farmer if his days of hitting the stage were to come to an end.

“I’m still not convinced this is my job,” begins Mumford.

“I’ve still got contingency plans at the back of my head, before every tour, about becoming a teacher or a farmer. I definitely have some sort of arrested development in terms of my psychology in terms of my career, where I still sort of feel like this is going to stop tomorrow.”

We guess we kind of understand why he thinks like that, after all, Mumford and Sons did go on a year-and-a-half-long hiatus due to exhaustion back in 2013 after taking the world by storm with their debut album Babel. But then again, from the pictures and videos we’ve seen of the band’s recent shows, we don’t see those contingency plans going into effect any time soon.
