Music News- Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce news of their forthcoming second album, Babel. The new set will be released through Glassnote Records on September 25, 2012 and was produced by Markus Dravs.
The band said in a press release; "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."
The band recently unveiled a video teaser to the album through Mumfordandsons.com with speculation mounting online as to the record's title. Babel follows the 2009 release of Mumford & Sons' debut album, Sigh No More.
