Mumford & Sons New Album Details

Mumford & Sons have released details about their sophomore album, Babel, which was produced by Markus Dravs and will be released on September 25th, 2012.

"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," says the band.

"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 will continue their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Shows this Summer in America, and have announced a tour of Australia and New Zealand for later in the year.
