Mumford And Sons say they are in the 'final stages' of recording their second album

Mumford And Sons have said that they are in the "final stages" of recording the follow-up to their debut album 'Sigh No More'.

The band are set to release the album later this year and their multi-instrumentalist Ben Lovett has said that they are almost finished with it.

Speaking to MTV News, he said of the album's progress: "We are in the final stages, we're not finished, we don't quite know the exact tracklisting. We have kind of road-tested some songs, and we have picked up some new songs and dropped some ones that people might have thought we were going to be putting on the record. We just want to make a record that's cohesive and one that we feel represents us best right now."

Lovett added that the band had not worked out which of their new songs would make the cut for the album yet and that he couldn't give any details on when the record would come out.

He said of this: "There just isn't [a release date yet]. We can't even say that any particular song is definitely on the record, because we just don't know. But we're being urgent with it, we're trying very hard."

The band are scheduled to play as part of this year's Amnesty International's Secret Policeman's Ball fundraiser in New York next month.

They're also penciled in to perform at this year's RockNess festival in Inverness in June, alongside the likes of Biffy Clyro and Justice.
