Mumford and Sons Already at Work on New Album
Despite the fact that Babel is only just out, Mumford and Sons are back in the studio. Winston Marshall told NME that the group is already at work on the follow-up to Babel, which is one of the biggest hit albums of the year so far.
Marshall said, “We’ve started working on new songs, got a rehearsal studio – we’re going to do that more often – got a few new tunes out of it. It was great, sounds really cool. They’re bones [of songs] but really exciting bones. Sturdy bones.”
He noted that the album “sounds a bit like the National, and a bit like the Band, without doing either of them justice” and noted that the group wants to play next year’s Glastonbury Festival. “We really want to,” he said. “We’ve done every Glastonbury that we could have and I’ve been every year since I can remember.”
