Mumford & Sons' 'Babel' Video: Black-And-White Clip Features A Rustic Take On Latest Song

The new Mumford & Sons video for the song "Babel" sees the band's four men on an infinite loop, with each pouring his entire body into the music on every glimpse. The black-and-white clip is set in a rustic-looking building with derelict walls, and even the piano Ben Lovett plays looked blighted.

It's a fitting image for a song that repeats the line "The walls of my town, they come crumbling down."

"Babel" marks the band's fourth single from the Grammy-winning album of the same name. The first two releases, "I Will Wait" and "Lover of the Light," both cracked the Top 5 on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart.

The album, released in September 2012, is currently the third best-selling record of the year, behind Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" and Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox." In its 40th week of release, "Babel" currently sits at No. 30 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. As of this past weekend, it made its way back to the top of the U.K. chart.
