During a recent visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Mumford and Sons served up a somewhat unexpected cover of English electro-pop singer-songwriter Shura’s “2Shy.”

The British folk-rockers transform the smoky, synth-laden cut with their newly adopted, larger-than-life electronic sound. However, they still manage to maintain the song’s emotional center, while frontman Marcus Mumford delivers a convincing rendition of Shura’s confessional plea: “We could be more than friends.” Check it out in the video up above and then compare it to the original below:

Mumford and Sons will soon return with their third full-length, Wilder Mind, on May 4 via Glassnote Records. The Mumford-led four-piece has already revealed three of the upcoming LP’s tracks, including “Believe,” “The Wolf” and “Snake Eyes.”

Recently, Mumford revealed that he regrets his band's now internationally recognized name. “I definitely regret the band name,” he explained in a recent interview. “If I’d known it was going to go this way, I would have wanted to call it anything other than my last name. It’s a ball-ache. We thought about changing it, but it’s a bit late now.”
