Mumford & Sons / Announce Second Album Details

| On 17, Jul 2012

Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce the details of their forthcoming second album.

 

‘Babel’ will be released through Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records on the 24th September 2012. It is produced by Markus Dravs.

 

“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

 

The band recently unveiled a video teaser to the album through Mumfordandsons.com with speculation mounting online as to the record’s title.

The album will be available to pre-order through the band’s website on the 23rd July.

 

‘Babel’ follows the 2009 release of Mumford & Sons’ debut album, ‘Sigh No More’.
