Mumford & Sons Announce New Album Babel

SOPHOMORE ALBUM BABEL OUT SEPTEMBER 25

UK indie folkers Mumford & Sons have announced the release of their much-anticipated sophomore album Babel on September 25 in North America. Produced by Markus Dravs, the record features 12 new tracks and follows 2009's breakthrough debut Sigh No More. As previously announced, the band will hit the road starting in August for U.S. tour dates, including four "Gentlemen of the Road" Stopovers from coast to coast. See scheduled shows below, along with the tracklisting for the album and a full statement from the band.

From MumfordandSons.com:

"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."
