Mumford & Sons have finished recording their new album - but may not release it.
The group have been working hard on the follow-up to 2009's 'Sigh No More' and admits they will scrap the record if it doesn't meet their high standards.
Keyboard player Ben Lovett said: ''We've done recording it but if we listen back while we're mixing and discover it's s**t then we'll just start again. We're not going to put it out until it's good enough.''
The band are planning to play new tracks at their summer dates because they enjoy seeing the crowd's response to new material.
Banjo player Winston Marshall explained to NME magazine: ''Playing the songs like helped shape them because we get to listen to them through the crowd's ears.''
And the group are quick to reassure fans not to expect a radical departure from their previous material on the new album.
Winston said: ''[Frontman] Marcus [Mumford] made a joke that the album wasn't doom folk and we don't really know why he did that. We'd just like to assure everyone that it is doom folk.''
