Opening in a frenzy of strumming guitars and prominent snares, Mumford and Sons recently released a track title, “The Wolf”, which was released on April 9. With a surprisingly new sound, “electric” and upbeat compared to older material, this track revealed the band’s so far successful attempt at exploring different much more dynamic musical styles.
Babel’s follow up, Mumford and Sons’ Wilder Mind is set to be released on May 4 of this year through Glassnote Records. So far two singles, including “The Wolf” have been released. “Believe”, released on March 9, carries the same electric sound as “The Wolf ” which, although introduces new instruments, still keeps a lot of the band’s original, high tension, and explosive choruses.
Mumford and Sons has an extensive list of festival dates posted as well as their performance on Saturday Night Live on April 11, which can be viewed here.
