Mumford & Sons have announced their new album, Babel, will be released on September 24. Several tracks, including "Lover's Eyes" and "Ghosts That We Knew" debuted during concerts on their recent tours.
Speaking with Rolling Stone, the group said that the album started to come together once they slowed down their feverish touring pace:
"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."
"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," they added.
Babel track list:
"Whispers In The Dark"
"I Will Wait"
"Ghosts That We Knew"
"Lover Of The Light"
"Below My Feet"
"Not With Haste"
