Mumford & Sons Finishing Up New Album


Mumford and Sons have revealed that not only are they in studio working on the follow-up to their highly successful debut Sign No More, they are actually close to being finished.

"We are in the final stages, we're not finished, we don't quite know the exact track listing," Ben Lovett told MTV News on the red carpet of Sunday's 54th Grammy Awards.

"But we have kind of road-tested some songs, and we have picked up some new songs and dropped some ones that people might have thought we were going to be putting on the record. We just want to make a record that's cohesive and one that we feel represents us best right now."

Lovett also explained that the process is going better than the band could have imagined.

"It's pretty strange. [It's] completely exceeded our expectations. Actually, [we were] talking to our manager about it last night . . . we had a dream to do a couple of tours off the back of [Sigh No More] in the U.K., then get back in and do a second record, and that was it. It's been crazy. [Some of the songs on the album are] four, five years old? We recorded it almost three years ago. And what's exciting is that we're right in the midst of recording the new album, so we feel very keen to plow on."
