Video: Mumford & Sons - 'We're Finishing Up The Album'

Mumford & Sons have spoken about their much-anticipated second album and revealed that they're currently "finishing it up".

Speaking to NME in a video which you can see by scrolling up to the top of the page and clicking, multi-instrumentalist Ben Lovett said that the band were in the latter stages of getting the record together.

Asked how the album was progressing, he said: "We're just finishing up the album now, as anyone who's kept up to date on what we're doing will be fully aware of. Not much to report, it's the same stage as we were a year ago because there's still no record. But we're aware of what it is now and we're excited about getting it out there."

Then asked if the quartet were feeling the weight of expectation, Lovett replied: "There's no pressure. We're just a band from London. The fact that the first record did well was great, but it didn't make our lives. It's just a by-product of what we do, which is record music and play gigs."

The folk band's new album is due for release on September 24 and is set to feature tracks named 'Below My Feet', 'Whispers In The Dark', 'Ghosts That We Knew' and 'Lover's Eyes', which have all been debuted live.
