As we all very impatiently wait for Babel, Mumford & Sons second album, a gift is given to us called “I Will Wait.” And what a gift it is. The English folk band sends the listener along a storm of folk/bluegrass that builds until that haunting voice of Marcus Mumford strides in. His amazing voice is then surrounded with soulful banjos, palm muted acoustics, and a gorgeous piano that gives this song the true Mumford & Sons sonic signature. If this is any indication of what Babel is going to sound like, Mumford & Song will again shake the world like they did with their first ablum, Sigh No More.

In the video, they show a continous shot of a long road trip that culminates when the words “Road To Red Rocks” appear on the screen. The band is currently on a US tour that will end in already sold-out back-to-back concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater in the Ninja home state of Colorado. Check out their tour dates here to see if any of the only 4 cities still with tickets remaining are near you. You can pre-order your CD or vinyl verison of the album on their website here.

Babel will be released on September 24th.
