Mumford and Sons are suggesting they could ditch some acoustics for their next album. The folky quartet are enjoying huge success with their second Grammy-nominated album Babel, but are already hatching their third.
According to NME, Marcus Mumford told The Times: Style Magazine that the band plan on changing much on their third album, and revealed that they are considering going in a new electronic direction. He says: “We'll do whatever feels soulful next, whether that's with an electric guitar or a synthesizer.”
“It's dangerous for us to talk about what we've been discussing for the third album, but we do have greater ambitions not to just stay within certain sonic confines,” added Ben Lovett. “We're not going to be the band that stands for folk music or organic music.”
