Mumford & Sons Debut New Song "Ghosts That We Know"


Mumford and Sons have certainly wrung everything they can out of their only LP Sigh No More – two years of touring and plenty of acclaim and awards later, the boys are starting to work on highly anticipated new material.

Our first taste is “Ghosts That We Knew,” which they performed for Philadelphia’s radio station 104.5FM. It’s a pretty classic slice of the band’s emotive, tender, sublime bluegrass-influenced alt-country, anchored in frontman Marcus Mumford’s yearning croon and beautifully complex, intertwining banjo, guitar, and accordion. Those ponderous, highly considered instrumental sections are where the band really hit their stride, but the harmonized vocal interludes are truly moving as well.
