It’s official, Mumford and Sons will be releasing their new studio album this May.
Last week, the indie band posted a cryptic message on Twitter to fans which featured a link to a video and a simple message telling them to look forward to some big news on Monday (today).
The British band’s third record will be titled Wilder Mind and will be released on May 5th through Island Records and Universal Music.
But the release date isn’t the only thing that was revealed about the new album. Leave it iTunes to once again ruin the surprise by prematurely posting the album art, tracklist, and other important information about the upcoming record. iTunes attempted to remedy the situation by taking down everything connected to the new album, but by then, it was too late.
The band are scheduled to make a “formal” announcement about the album later today, but why when iTunes already released everything unless they will be releasing the first single off of the album to coincide with the announcement.
Check out the album art and tracklist below.
