Produced by Markus Dravs 'Babel' is the the exciting follow up to Mumford & Sons' 2009 debut album 'Sigh No More'.  The band says of their new album:


'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.'

'Although the songs are melodic and accessible, they are far from routine; heavy rhythms dominate the floor of most tracks, while frontman Marcus Mumford's impassioned and rasping vocals give the air of a man who is at least singing for his supper, and on occasions even his life...Best yet is closing track Not With Haste, a fragile ballad that shimmers like sunshine on an empty sea. As this track builds force, Mumford asserts that "I am what I am", although he may have added that he is not what many people
assume. Mumford & Sons are a fine modern folk band who have found ways to breathe new life into an ancient form of music.'
BBC Online

'...fans will surely exult in the rolling hootenanny charm of tracks like Hopeless Wanderer and Babel.' The Independent
