Song of the Day for April 6th is Tompkins Square Park by Mumford and Sons. Tompkins Square Park is the first track on their latest album "Wilder Mind" (2015).
I've recently bought a couple of CD's for the first time in literally a decade and this is one of the few I actually have in my car currently. Yes in 2016 I'm using CDs.
Mumford and Sons drastically changed their signature sound for this album, no banjos and added more electric guitars and drums for a more traditional rock sound. Still the same great lyrical content. I really love their first two albums but Wilder Mind is worth a listen. Today's song of the day is track #1 off that album. I'm using the live version because the live version of good bands is usually better, I love live music, I NEED to see Mumford and Sons live at some point, they're in my top 3 favorite acts out right now. Probably #2 after The Black Keys. Give this whole album a chance, it's a lot different for their other stuff as I said but I still really enjoyed it. Ditmas is personally my favorite song off of it, this is a close second.
Here is Tompkins Square Park, the song of the day for April 6th, 2016. Enjoy
