Music News: Indie folkers Mumford & Sons have announced details of their next release – a mysterious kind of gas with a distinct musty smell.

The band say they have been road testing the musty stink over the last 18 months during soundchecks on their recent tour, and are ready to release the putrid cloud of gas in September.

“As a band, we’ve never been closer or more collaborative, all working to our strengths. This musty smell is a natural progression that we’re really proud of, and we cannot wait to take it out on the road,” the band said in a statement on their website.

“It’s a step forward from our first release,” said lead singer Marcus Mumford. “That was more fusty smelling, while our next release has a distinctive mildewy, moth-eaten smell to it.”

The band was forced to cancel two shows last month after Mumford, who sings and plays guitar and other instruments, broke his hand while enthusiastically wafting the smell around the stage.
