Story by Anne Erickson

Kings of Leon have begun the recording process for their upcoming full-length album

It’s official: Kings of Leon are working on their new studio album. The news came via drummer Nathan Followill today (Jan. 7), who announced that the popular alternative rock band has started the recording process for their highly-anticipated follow-up to 2010’s “Come Around Sundown.”

Nathan delivered the stellar news on his official Twitter account, stating, “Off 2 the gym to get my sweat on & then it’s music making time. Today is the official start of record #6. I dreamt of drum parts last night.”

Nathan’s brother, bass player Jared Followill, previously stated that the gents were getting ready to enter the studio for the new album. “We are in the writing process right now and it’s coming along pretty quickly,” Followill told BBC 6 Music when asked about recording plans in 2013. “We’ll definitely get into the studio by the end of this year but we have no plans of finishing it this year. But definitely early next year, so I think people should expect something from us sooner rather than later.”

“Come Around Sundown” debuted No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, pushing over 184,000 copies its first week out, according to Nielsen Soundscan totals. The upcoming release will be Kings of Leon’s sixth studio album.
