Mumford and Sons were pegged to take home the Grammy for Album of the Year award for their chart topping album Babel and, as predicted, the English folk rock group took home the coveted Grammy.
The group, who is currently on tour, made it their priority to be able to attend the Grammys. Marcus Mumford tells Billboard, "We're in the middle of a tour now. Our idea was to plant the Grammy weekend in the middle of a tour because that feels more real to us. Slightly regretting it in terms of tiredness levels."
Mumford and Sons was joined in their category by an all-male nominations list which included the likes of Jack White, Frank Ocean, the Black Keys and Fun.
At the time, Mumford and Sons were pegged to win 2/5.
They did note that despite their busy schedules they are never “not writing,” and although they take home the big win for Babel, there will be more music from the band in the future, just when, is the major question.
"We've never not been writing," Mumford said. "But we haven't got an album together or anything."
