Speaking about Mumford And Sons’ Hyde Park, guitar and banjo Winston Marshall told NME there was a “high chance” that the band would have new material to play at the Hyde Park show.

“We want to play, like, everywhere and it does feel quite fresh for us to play it,” said Marshall. “I guess other places that we really want to play eventually would be Finsbury Park, that would be fucking wicked.” He then hinted at plans for the band’s fourth album. “I think now we’re at this point where the old songs and the new songs are fucking great together and now we’re looking to write new songs and write new records,” he said.
