The maiden track to be taken from Mumford & Sons‘ forthcoming second record ‘Babel‘ will air for the first time this evening (August 7th) on BBC radio.
The as-yet-unconfirmed song will debut on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, giving fans a first official taste of new material from the much-anticipated album, which is due for release next month.
“We are more than excited to release ‘Babel’ into the world,” Mumford & Sons said when confirming their album’s details earlier this summer.
“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 ‘roadtesting’ 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.”Just Published:
