Mumford and Sons could go electric on new album

The band are already making plans for a follow-up to Babel.
Great deals on musical instruments
Mumford and Sons are considering adopting an electronic style for their follow-up to the hugely successful Babel.

The band have been renowned for their acoustic and folky sound, striking a note with fans all over the world, but now front man Marcus Mumford believes it is time for the group to go in another direction and it could be employed on their third album.

Band member Ben Lovett also explained that Mumford and Sons have ambitions that mean they are not solely planning to stay in one specific genre for the entirety of their career and do have the ability to change things up every now and then.

Marcus told Style Magazine: "We've always done what feels good, rather than what we've thought long and hard about, and we'll do whatever feels soulful next, whether that's with an electric guitar or a synthesizer."

The band have had unparalleled success since they first burst onto the scene with their debut album Sigh No More, which was released in 2009.

It went on to score a host of number one slots including the top spot in the US Billboard Digital charts, as well as second place in the US Billboard.
