New Music Express posts that Mumford and Sons are currently in early studio sessions with James Ford (Arctic Monkeys and Haim) as producer.
NME says “A source close to the band commented of the sessions: “It’s very early days yet, but the sessions have been going well”. The band released their last album ‘Babel’ in 2012 and were thought to currently be on hiatus. It is not known if the new sessions are for a third album.”
Marcus Mumford, along with Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, will appear on the forthcoming T Bone Burnett produced ‘lost’ Bob Dylan lyrics LP, ‘Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes’.
The record will accompany a documentary, “Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued” directed by Sam Jones.
