Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling announce new download EP

Acts release special shows with India's Dharohar Project

Mumford and Sons and Laura Marling have announced plans to release a download EP featuring material they recorded with Indian musicians last year.

The four-track release features recordings from their unique tour of India back in December 2009. They spent a number of days with the Dharohar Project, a Rajasthani folk collective, in a makeshift studio at an arts and culture school in Delhi.

The EP, which is available from iTunes from July 5, includes collaborative re-workings of Mumford and Sons‘To Darkness’ and Laura Marling‘s ‘Devil’s Spoke’.

The full tracklisting is as follows:

‘Devil’s Spoke/Sneh Ko Marg’
‘To Darkness/Kripa’
‘Anmol Rishtey’
‘Mehendi Rachi’

The EP’s release coincides with two announced performances by all three acts at London’s Roundhouse on July 9 and Bradford St George’s Hall on July 12. Both dates will feature individual sets alongside the collaborations.

Tickets for the Bradford show are currently on sale, while the London gig is part of the iTunes Festival, where tickets are free – see itunesfestival.co.uk for more information.
