Babel, the follow up to Mumford & Sons 2009 debut album Sigh No More, was released on September 24. The album is produced by Markus Dravs.
Mumford & Sons has this to say about their highly anticipated new CD:
"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."
Tune-in to KSUT Friday at noon as we feature 'Babel' in its entirety.
