Mumford & Sons Releases Religiously-Tinged New Single ‘Babel’

Brit band Mumford & Sons just played Saturday Night Live last week in support of their new album, Babel. The first single is also titled “Babel,” and the song is much more about the Bible than about the Brad Pitt movie. Sample lyric: “Know my weakness, know my voice/and now believe in grace and choice.”

Religion isn’t unfamiliar territory for the band. Lead singer Marcus Mumford‘s father is a vicar and performed the ceremony when Marcus married Carey Mulligan this spring. Check out the single and see what you think.
