New Mumford and Sons Album Will Not Be Named ‘The Troubled Boys School’
Anticipation has been growing for the next album from folk stars Mumford and Sons. One thing that we know about the follow-up to their 2009 debut, ‘Sigh No More,’ is that it won’t be called ‘The Troubled Boys School.’
Speaking to London radio station Xfm, percussionist Ted Dwane and banjo player Country Winston Marshall said fans shouldn’t judge the new record hastily just because they think it will sound similar to ‘Sigh No More.’
“I’m just looking forward to listeners seeing a slightly broader side to our musicality,” Dwane explained. “It’s very much the same four lads writing songs but there is certainly a bit of evolution there in terms of the writing. Just really excited.”
Despite releasing a trailer for the new material that was originally entitled ‘The Troubled Boys School,’ the video clip has since been re-titled to just say ‘Coming Soon.’ You can watch it here.
“It’s not meant to be cryptic, and it is very simple,” stated Marshall. Added Dwane: ”It wasn’t a plan. Someone made that video and we liked it so we were like, ‘Oh, we’ll stick it on the website.’”
Mumford and Sons have stated in the past that their new album will be released on Sept. 24.
