Have you heard Mumford & Sons yet? If you live in Lebanon my guess is no…Take a break from the typical commercial tunes and check out this British band who has made Folk music cool. Mumford & Sons have set their new album release date for September 25th. The new album is entitled “Babel”. This eagerly anticipated follow-up to “Sigh No More” was said by the band to be a, “natural progression” that was written on the road.
The band consists of lead singer Marcus Mumford, keyboardist/accordion player Ben Lovett, banjo player Country Winston Marshall and bassist/drummer Ted Dwane. The band had this to say about their music…
“We love playing live, obviously, but it had also become an important
part of our creative process. We had been writing and rehearsing in sound checks, and sort of ‘road-testing’ new songs on our very gracious audiences. But then we fell in love with recording again.”
“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.” (quote source yahoo.com)
