Mumford & Sons - Home

Take a few minutes out of your busy day to click the link below and just chill.

This latest track from the band was recently premiered live on American radio and provides a taster of what's to come from the follow up to 'Sigh No More'.  It seems not much will change, which is definitely a good thing.  Home is a gentle track, less rousing than, say, The Cave, but still providing the warm harmonies and folk sound we're used to.  Marcus's vocals start at the very base of his range, gradually rising to the song's passionate and soaring conclusion with the lyric "Lover I'll be home in a little while".

A beautiful sentiment, beautifully performed.  In the storm of fame and success, the band still retain that sense of calm.
