Mumford & Sons Say They Have Included References to Literature on New Album
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.14.2012



Mumford & Sons has revealed that a track from their upcoming album has a line from a novel. Marcus Mumford told BBC Radio 4 that one of the tracks from Babel includes a line spoken by Thomas Cromwell in Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. He didn't reveal which song or line, joking, "I'm not going to tell you which, because I think it might be illegal!"

Mumford added that the full album has several literary references, noting, " Honestly, they appear everywhere. But I don't think that's a unique thing for us as a band. You just have to listen to Bob Dylan to realise that's what people do when they write songs… A lot of the time writers are just sponges... for what's around them, and so books are helpful for focusing your mind and literally putting it into words."

Dylan has been criticized for using lines from literature and recently lashed out, calling the accusing critics "evil motherfuckers" who "can rot in hell."

Babel drops September 23rd.
