Sometimes, just playing your instruments in a continuous loop on a video can be interesting enough, especially when many artists don't play instruments anymore. Mumford & Sons do play instruments on "Babel" their new video from their latest album with the same name.
"Babel" is the fourth single from the album bearing the same name and the first 2 singles were huge hits. "Babel" should follow suit.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We hear they are quite amazing live. Glad the bass player Ted Dwane is recovering from brain surgery.
They also dissed Glastonbury by saying thier Olympic Park gig was "S@#$loads better than Glastonbury." Hmm....
Grammy winner Justin Timberlake & Grammy Winners Mumford & Sons are going to team together for a duet for the movie "Inside Llewyn Davis".
The movie stars Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake's wife, and Carey Mulligan, wife of Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons.
The two recorded the song with Justin stating:
"Marcus and myself we all kind of worked on the music together and I don’t know any other world where we would get the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun. Not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.”
The movie is about a singer-songwriter from the 60's and has no release date at the moment.-DocFB
