Sigh no more, no more One foot in sea, one on shore My heart was never pure You know me, you know me. But man is a giddy thing Oh, man is a giddy thing Oh, man is a giddy thing Oh, man is a giddy thing. This is the first song on Mumford & Sons' major-label debut of the same name. Marcus Mumford takes a break from his usual Anglican inspiration and fixes on Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing as a lyrical source. Mumford turns Shakespeare’s words into a heartfelt apology and then adds his own anthemic chorus, driven by a pounding, palm-muted guitar, an ode to the power of love and his desire to see it realized.

But the move paid off handsomely and within two years, on 2 October 2009, his band, Mumford & Sons, released their debut album, Sigh No More. It went multi-platinum and, at a stroke, established the band as the breakout success of the so-called nu-folk scene
That melding of styles, along with some solid knob-twiddling from Arcade Fire/Coldplay producer Markus Dravs, helps to keep the record from completely sinking into the quicksand of its myriad slow numbers - tracks like "I Gave You All," "Thistle & Weeds," and "After the Storm" are pretty and plain enough, but they neuter a band this spirited. Sigh No More is an impressive debut, but.
Album · 2009 · 12 Songs. Exuberance, sincerity, melodrama, banjos-everything that led to Mumford & Sons' rise to superstardom is here on their 2009 debut. Animated by rich harmonies, lightning-fast picking and epic crescendos, tracks like "Little Lion Man" and "The Cave" defined the arena-folk sound the Sons popularised. On the album's tempestuous opening track, Marcus Mumford exclaims, "Love, it will not betray, dismay or enslave you/It will set you free".
