After a tease from the band last week, Mumford & Sons have officially announced their upcoming record. The third album from the band will be called Wilder Mind and comes out on May 4 via Glassnote Records. You can expect a departure from the folk/bluegrass Mumford you’ve come to know and love on the followup to the Grammy award-winning Babel.
“All of us had this desire to shake it up. The songwriting hasn’t changed drastically; it was led more by a desire to not do the same thing again. Plus, we fell back in love with drums! It’s as simple as that,” says frontman Marcus Mumford on the new sound.
You can preorder the album now through the band’s website.
Take a look at the album art, tracklist, and listen to “Believe” below.
