LOS ANGELES – “Babel” by British folk rockers Mumford & Sons won the coveted Album of the Year award at the 55th Grammy Awards on Sunday.

They beat “El Camino” by The Black Keys, “Some Nights” by fun., “Channel Orange” by R&B singer Frank Ocean and “Blunderbuss” by Jack White, at the climax of the music industry’s biggest awards show.

The top prize largely came as a surprise after Mumford & Sons lost out in other key categories, although they took the Best Long Form Music Video for “Big Easy Express.”

Mumford & Sons had been nominated for Grammys the previous two years, including for Record of the Year in 2012, but had not taken home a prize until Sunday.
