The success of Mumford & Sons both in the UK and across the pond has been staggering. What started as fairly positive reviews and an excellent live show has morphed into millions of albums sold, festival headlining slots, a film, a festival of their own and countless awards.
Their second album, Babel, scheduled for release in September and people are getting excited. Very excited. Us included.
While we highlighted a number of live cuts a few weeks ago and guessed at what we thought Babel would sound like, we now don’t have to.
‘I Will Wait’ is everything you’d expect from their comeback single. Singalong, chest-thumping, acoustic guitar driven uber-folk-pop.
