UK folkies Mumford & Sons are having quite a week. According to Billboard, the boys are set to break records with the release of their sophomore LP, Babel. With tentative figures of around 600,000 copies, it looks like Babel may have moved more units in its first week in the U.S. than any album since AC/DC’s Black Ice in 2008.
This would also make Babel the second highest sold digital album of all time behind Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. Babel is out now on Island/Glassnote.
