Mumford & Sons Want to Start Work on New Album Soon
Recent weeks have been positive for Mumford & Sons. The British band just saw their sophomore effort, Babel drop, and since then, the album went to the top of the charts in the U.K. and additionally sold 600,000 copies in the U.S. With that kind of success, why wait several years before releasing another album? Although the band, it seems, does not have a concrete plan for a follow-up as of yet, Marcus Mumford recently revealed that they’re considering another album.
Mumford mentioned the band wants to go into the studio as soon as possible. Between their debut, Sigh No More, and Babel was a three-year gap, one filled primarily with touring. In talking to the press, he said: “We want to make one quicker than we did with this one. We want to get into the studio quicker and get another album out a bit sooner.”
Explaining the three-year gap between releases, Mumford went onto say: "[The wait] was just because we were touring that we didn't have time. It wasn't like we were sunning ourselves. We've been playing music the whole time."
As far as touring is concerned, Mumford & Sons did a short U.S. tour in August, wrapping up their North American excursion in early September. They have since added additional U.K. dates.
Did you purchase Babel? How did you like the release? What do you think the follow-up should sound like?
