The Wait Is Over. Mumford & Sons Announce New Album Due This Spring.

I hate to pigeonhole artists.

Good music is just that – good music. As an avid country fan, I’m naturally drawn to certain types of music outside of the “country” world. Mumford & Sons definitely fall into that category. A little folk, a little rock, a little country – perfect.

It’s been about three years since this band put out an album, and the wait is over. The group just announced Wilder Mind will be available May 4th. You can pre-order right here.

On their new album, Mumford & Sons have mostly removed their signature elements – banjo, acoustic strumming, stomping kick drum – and replaced them with U2-sized guitars, synths, spacey mellotrons and even some drum machines. Personally, I can’t wait to see what they came up with.

Here’s a little teaser to get you ready…

Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
