The Album Suggestion | Babel by Mumford & Sons

The Album Suggestion | Babel by Mumford & Sons

For their new album, the tweed-donning, banjo-twanging, country minstrels from, er, West London, are sticking to their formula of jolly, thigh-slapping folksiness. 

However, there is “a slight flavour of darkness,” as producer Marcus Dravs recently admitted, apparently inspired by missing their merry maids while wandering the hillocks of the US (Marcus Mumford is married to Carey Mulligan, so fair dos).

Babel, the new album by Mumford & Sons, is out on 24 September (Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records)
