Recorded at Air Studios, London and produced by James Ford (HAIM, Florence & The Machine), ‘Wilder Mind’ features twelve new tracks, written collaboratively by the band in London, Brooklyn, and Texas.
This new album marks a significant departure for the young British band from their previous records, 2009’s ‘Sigh No More’, and 2012’s ‘Babel’. The early sessions in New York and London witnessed a change in the band’s approach not just to writing and recording, but to texture and dynamics, too. There is a minimalist yet panoramic feel to the new album, whose sound Marcus Mumford describes as “a development, not a departure.” It came about by both accident, and by conscious decision.
