Mumford & Sons recording “doom folk” album

In The Studio

Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has revealed that the band’s second album will have a darker tone than their first, 2010’s ‘Sign No More’.

Dwane told Rolling Stone: “[It’s] certainly more mature, I’d say. The second record is just a reflection of our mindsets, where we’re all at. It’s doom folk, kind of like Black Sabbath meets Nick Drake”.

See if you can get any of that from Mumford keyboard player Ben Lovett’s CMU playlist.
