Mumford & Sons have released a live-shot video for "I Will Wait," the lead single from the band's forthcoming second studio album, Babel. The album is set to be released in the U.S. on September 25, 2012 via Island Records.
The single "I Will Wait" was released on August 7, 2012 and it has climbed to No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard Alternative Songs chart. This particular performance was shot at the legendary Red Rocks Ampitheater in Colorado, in front of a captivated sold-out crowd. In the clip, it's hard to tell whether the audience or the band is having more fun. Watch below.
From ACL Live:
Babel will be released through Glassnote Records on September 25th, 2012. It is produced by Markus Dravs.
The band issued the following statement in anticipation of the album: “We are more than excited to release Babel into the world. We had started writing new songs well before we got into the studio to record. At first, we peeled ourselves off the road quite reluctantly. We love playing live, obviously, but it had also become an important part of our creative process, we had been writing and rehearsing in soundchecks, and sort of ‘road-testing’ new songs on our very gracious audiences. But then we fell in love with recording again. The album started to come together, and with the help of Markus Dravs once more (and engineer Robin Baynton), we started to relish the challenge of making this album. As a band, we’ve never been closer or more collaborative, all working to our strengths. And so we feel that this record is a natural progression that we’re proud of, and we cannot wait to take it out on the road.” – Mumford & Sons
The single 'I Will Wait' is now available from iTunes.
