Mumford & Sons swear off banjos on 'The Wolf'

Posted on

James Minchin III

Mumford & Sons have shared the second song off their forthcoming, very different sounding third album Wilder Mind. “The Wolf” ditches the band’s signature banjos in favor of electric guitars and a vibe that’s strangely reminiscent of the alt-rock that flooded airwaves about five years ago—coincidentally the same type of music that some saw Mumford as a reprieve from. Wilder Mind is out May 4. Check out the kaleidoscopic video for “The Wolf” below.
