Mumford & Sons Announce New Album “Babel”

Million-selling folk-rock group Mumford & Sons have announced the details of the follow-up to their 2009 smash hit Sigh No MoreBabel will be released on Glassnote Records on September 25th.

The band released the following statement in regards to Babel: We are more than excited to release Babel into the world. We had started writing new songs well before we got into the studio to record. At first, we peeled ourselves off the road quite reluctantly. We love playing live, obviously, but it had also become an important part of our creative process, we had been writing and rehearsing in soundchecks, and sort of ‘road-testing’ new songs on our very gracious audiences. But then we fell in love with recording again. The album started to come together, and with the help of Markus Dravs once more (and engineer Robin Baynton), we started to relish the challenge of making this album. As a band, we’ve never been closer or more collaborative, all working to our strengths. And so we feel that this record is a natural progression that we’re proud of, and we cannot wait to take it out on the road.”

Mumford & Sons are currently on a world tour that will continue into November. You can pre-order Babel on their website starting July 23rd.
