Kings of Leon plan to unleash their latest full-length this fall
New music from Kings of Leon is on the horizon. Bass player Jared Followill has announced that the popular alternative rock band will release their much-anticipated sixth studio album this fall. In an interview with NME, Follow says that the band is plotting to unleash the new set this September. As for the sound of the album, it actually goes back to Kings of Leon’s early years.
“I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds,” he notes. “It’s like a mix of [our 2003 debut release] ‘Youth and Young Manhood’ and [2007’s] ‘Because of the Times.’”
Kings of Leon’s last studio set, 2010’s “Come Around Sundown,” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 54th Grammy Awards.
