Mumford & Sons confirm ‘The Wolf’ as new single


Mumford & Sons have confirmed ‘The Wolf‘ as the latest single to be taken from their third studio album ‘Wilder Mind‘, which has remained at number one on the UK charts this week.

First premiered on Radio 1 over a month ago, the track has now been given a single release date of June 29th. It’s a part of the album which was recorded at Air Studios in London with producer James Ford.

“Towards the end of the Babel tour, we’d always play new songs during soundchecks, and none of them featured the banjo, or a kick-drum, we knew it wasn’t going to involve acoustic instruments,” Marcus Mumford said.

“We didn’t say, ‘No acoustic instruments’, but I think all of us had this desire to shake it up. The songwriting hasn’t changed drastically; it was led more by a desire to not do the same thing again. Plus, we fell back in love with drums! It’s as simple as that.”
