Hello! Mumford & Sons have only officially confirmed that “Below My Feet” will be on the new album, but one can assume that the post-Sigh No More songs that have been frequenting their set lists will also most likely make the new album.
“The Banjolin Song” is one of Mumford & Sons’ oldest songs, as it was released in 2008 on their second EP, Love Your Ground. It is for that reason that the song will probably not be on the new album. There are a few other new and old songs my followers have inquired about, too, and you can read about those here.
This is a rare video of Mumford & Sons performing “The Banjolin Song” live. Recorded at the Brighton Corn Exchange on 12 March 2010, this version of the song has an added introduction with special guest, the rainbow xylophone!
So here’s something neat. I haven’t seen this version of the Banjolin Song with Johnny Flynn oot and aboot on Tumblr. It’s a preview/unused version for the Take Away Show. Maybe you have. I love it. I wish I was a bajillionaire and could hire them as my town’s roving troubadours. And is Ted walking and playing the double bass?!
By request, here are Mumford and Sons with Johnny Flynn performing “The Banjolin Song” and “Awake My Soul” (the partially French version!). What a fantastic concert they give on the street and in someone’s yard!
