Mumford & Sons release EP “Johannesburg” 

Grammy award winning folk band Mumford & Sons released a short album titled Johannesburg today. The five track project with  Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal, the band Very Best, and the Johannesburg group Beatenburg is the first release for Mumford & Sons since Wilder Mind. The EP was recorded at the South African Broadcasting Corporation. It is there that these acts tried to create a bridge between African sound and folk pop. The tracks are refreshingly warm, diverse in sound, and rhythmic. 

The opening track “There Will Be Time” sets a great foundation for a sincere harmony between these three acts from different aspects of the musical spectrum.
