British indie rock band Mumford & Sons' Babel was named album of the year at the 55th Grammy awards ceremony here, while musician Gotye's Somebody that I used to know won the record of the year title. The song of the year trophy was bagged by We are young.

Babel, produced by Markus Dravs, is the second album by Mumford & Sons. It pipped over other nominees, including The Black Keys' El Camino, Frank Ocean's Channel Orange, Jack White's Blunder Buss and Some Nights by Fun.

Somebody that I used to know by Gotye featuring Kimbra also got the gong in the best pop duo/group performance category.

The Grammy awards ceremony was held here Sunday.
