Ted Dwane and Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons talked with Vanessa Spanbauer of Austria’s music magazine Enemy while in Vienna on 7th March, 2013. Here’s a translated excerpt from the interview:

Rumor has it that you want to rap on your next album. Is this true and what can we expect? 
Ben: I can now start a rumor. Want to hear an exclusive rap? (Laughs) Nah, I’m not ready for that! Ted: That is a quote out of context. (Laughs) It was more sarcasm that someone has not understood. Ben: We actually have no idea how the next album will sound. It could be anything. So, theoretically, it could even be rap. It could also be a spoken album. Ted: Or a picture! (Laughs) Ben: Or complete silence! (Laughs) You just have to wait. Speculation is currently dangerous because we focus only on our concerts.

Your last video for “Lover Of The Light” is brilliant. Could it be because you’re not in it? 
Ben:   Yes, exactly! (Laughs) Thank you! Ted: That is what we have realized. (Laughs) Ben: Just stay out of the video. (Laughs) Ted: What we have now learned there definitely helped. I think from now on, even I am in the videos. We have just finished the next one [“Whispers in the Dark”] and I’m very happy with it. I think we are now in a new era of our music videos.
