Mumford & Sons have released a new song titled “The Wolf.” The track is off the band’s third studio album,Wilder Mind, which is set to release on May 4 via Glassnote Records. Check out the stream below the jump.
The song includes everything that is familiar of Mumford & Sons, but kicked up a notch. The sound is driven by heavy drumming and a dark bass complimenting the band’s vocals. The band seems to be drifting further and further away from their indie, folk rock roots and taking a leap into a harder side of the spectrum, which may or may not work for them depending on the complete album release.
Pre-order packages for the release are available now at the band’s website. To hear more from the group, you can purchase a CD here. Mumford & Sons will be playing various music festivals this summer, including Bonnaroo, Rock n Rome Festival and Reeding/Leeds. To see the band live, you can buy concert tickets here.
