Whilst I haven’t yet had the opportunity to listen to Babel, the newest musical offering form Mumford and Sons, in its entirety. I have, like the rest of you, been bombarded by the ghastly debut single ‘I Will Wait’. But rather than waiting around for a better single to be released, I fished around and found this diamond in the rough. That’s not to say that there aren’t other great tracks on the album. I just haven’t gotten round to hearing them yet. So in the meantime, I’ll leave you with ‘Lover’s Eyes. It’s been around now for over a year so most of you have probably already heard  it. But for those of you who haven’t, it’s well worth a listen.

Below is a live version they performed last year for iheart radio. Enjoy!!

  1. Love these guys!
    They have been so refreshing amongst such “tuned” music.
    I love the new album but still my heart goes out to the first…

  2. Sad to say this is like the Editors – the second album is a poor attempt at remaking the first. It has the elements without the coherent urgency of heart.
    I remain hopeful for part 3 🙂

  3. I feel the same as yomicfit about this. The new album will grow on me though, to be sure. I have been in love with Mumford and Sons for quite a while now.

  4. I was a bit ‘meh’ about Mumford & Sons until I heard this song, and it really was the gateway which introduced me to their charm. Such a gorgeous song. I actually prefer the live version to the album – so much more evocative.
