Mumford & Sons Plan Bluegrass EP


Still basking in the success of their debut album, Sigh No More, it seems Mumford & Sons certainly still have the creative juices flowing. The British four-man band plans to release an EP later this year—this time going the bluegrass route.

“The idea is just to let our hair down a little, have a bit more of a country wig-out,” frontman Marcus Mumford told NME. “Two of them were written before the album, but we felt like they just didn’t belong there, and a few of them have been written since. But then there’s one where half of it is a really old song of ours that we’re going to try out.”

While you await this latest offering from one of Paste’s favorite new bands, you can satisfy your Mumford & Sons cravings via the band’s upcoming North American tour, which kicks off May 13.
