Speaking to Rolling Stone about their second studio set, bassist Ted Dwane explained: "The second record is just a reflection of our mindsets, where we're all at. It's doom folk, kind of like Black Sabbath meets Nick Drake."

The musician also admitted that the band were not expecting such a high level of commercial success when they first started out.

He added: "It's been really affirming because we started out with very humble aspirations. We never thought we'd be commercially viable and we were proved wrong."

Mumford & Sons' second studio album is expected to be released in 2012.

The group recently debuted a new track titled 'Ghosts That We Knew' during a live radio gig in the US.

Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More is the second-highest downloaded album from iTunes in 2011, despite the album being released two years ago.
