Mumford & Sons To Release Banjo-Free Album

in New Music,News

Mumford & Sons third album ‘Wilder Mind’ will be stripped off all banjo.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Marcus Mumford dropped the no-banjo bomb-shell qualifying new direction with “We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us”.

Bass player Ted Dwane added, “We’ve got a broader taste in music than just that. None of us had really any interest in doing a sort of Babel 2. It was always going to be different.”

Pre-orders for the ‘Wilder Mind’ album have opened on iTunes. The third Mumford & Sons album will be released in May.

Wilder Mind Track List

1. “Tompkins Square Park”
2. “Believe”
3. “The Wolf”
4. “Wilder Mind”
5. “Just Smoke”
6. “Monster”
7. “Snake Eyes”
8. “Broad-Shouldered Beasts”
9. “Cold Arms”
10. “Ditmas”
11. “Only Love”
12. “Hot Gates”
