Mumford and Sons: officially biggest in 2012

London folk group Mumford and Sons have proven themselves bigger than anybody (even bigger than Justin Bieber) in 2012, after selling 600,000 copies of new album Babel in the first week since its release.

Billboard have reported that the band have smashed the 2012 US album sales record with the follow up to their equally successful debut album ‘Sigh No More.’ Having listened to the album a couple of times, I have to say I find it intriguing but pleasant that they have sold so much records – their old school but somehow remarkably fresh attitude just does it for me, and for many others as well, as it seems; stay tuned for an album review in a few days.

Mumford and Sons are set to go on tour across the UK and Ireland this winter, strengthening the grip Britts have on music at the moment (remember Adele?).
