Mumford & Sons Return With ‘I Will Wait’
British folk-rockers release first single from second album ‘Babel’
It’s been three years since British folk-rockers Mumford & Sons released their breakout recordÂ Sigh No More. Today, the group returned with the aptly titled “I Will Wait,” the first single from their long-awaited second effort,Â Babel. The brokenhearted stomper is filled with thumping percussion, a full-fledged banjo onslaught and, of course, the band’s trademark shout-along chorus. The accompanying video is a simple clip of a road rushing underneath a car.
It all fits intoÂ Babel‘s road motif, according to bassist Ted Dwane.Â “Being away so much for the last couple of years is inevitably a theme on the record, because it’s something that we’ve all shared,” he explained.
BabelÂ is set for release onÂ September 25th.
