Mumford and Sons have released the first single to be taken from their forthcoming third album 'Wilder Mind'.

It's called 'Believe' and was debuted last night on the new BBC Radio 1 show by Dubliner Annie Mac, who has taken over from Zane Lowe.

The band played an intimate showcase gig in London last night that saw them run through all of the album, which reportedly takes a less acoustic/folk-oriented direction.

As NME reports, when an audience member shouted 'What happened to the banjos?", lead singer Marcus Mumford said "That's a fair question. We don't really know. We'll get back to you on that one."
