Mumford and Sons Begin 2nd Album; Deluxe 3-Disc 'Sigh No More' Due 10/25

Grammy-nominated breakout U.K. band Mumford and Sons report they're back in the studio working on the follow up to their 1.7 million selling debutalbum Sign No More. "After a couple of years on the road it feels like a genuine treat to be sleeping in our own beds and getting coffee from the same place every morning. We decided we wanted to record here in London so that we can catch up with friends and enjoy this city we loosely call home. We are doing the bulk of the work at Eastcote studios where we recorded Sigh No More," writes bandmemember Ted Dwayne at the band's website.

Meanwhile, the West London folksters are planning to release a deluxe 3-disc version of their bestselling debut on October 25, a package which will include the original album (with one bonus track), a 12-song live CD recorded at Shepherd's Bush Empire in Londona, a DVD of the Mumford and Sons documentary film "Gentlemen of the Road" and a faux (!) leather 22-page booklet with gold foil print. Sigh No More spent 32 consecutive weeks in the top 25 of the Billboard Top 200 albums in 2010.
