Mumford & Sons Want To Experiment With A Different Sound On Their Next Album
Although Mumford & Sons‘ sophomore album, Babel, just won Album of the Year at the Grammys, the band says their next album will have a slightly different sound. Found out what some of the Sons said:
Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons said the band’s next album will deliver a different sound from their first two (2010’s Sigh No More and Babel). You can’t deny the cohesion of the two and Lovett says, quote,

The band has a “handful of new songs”, but don’t expect a new album anytime soon. Winston Marshall says, quote, “It might take a few more years than it took to make Babel (there were 3 years between Sigh No More and Babel).
