Fresh off winning Album of the Year at The Grammys for Babel, Mumford & Sons joked to Rolling Stone about their next record's direction.

"I do feel like we're ready to make the departure," said the indie folk group's keyboardist Ben Lovett. “We really want to rap. We've just got so much to say—saying it through a melody doesn't really work for me. We've been talking with Jay-Z about it, you know. It's gonna be a fresh experience for our band." Jay-Z, apparently, was not available to comment to RS.

If they do take the hip hop route, we've already begun thinking possible song titles: “I Will Wait…for My Shawty”? “The Cave…of Rap”? “Little Lion Man (Raggae Remix featuring Snoop Lion)”? Got anything better?

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
