Kings of Leon’s latest full-length, ‘Mechanical Bull,’ is slated to drop on Sept. 24
Kings of Leon fans, the wait is almost over. The U.K.-based alternative rock band has announced the name and title of their sixth studio release. “Mechanical Bull” is slated to hit stores and online outlets on Sept. 24, according to Billboard.
The band was slated to announce the new music during its headlining set at New York’s Governors Ball Music Festival this past Friday (June 7), but bad weather cut the festival short, preventing the group from performing.
The album’s first single is reportedly called “Super Soaker” and will hit radio and iTunes in mid-July. The band recorded the release with longtime producer Angelo Petraglia in March, according to Billboard.
“Mechanical Bull” will mark the band’s follow-up to 2010’s “Come Around Sundown.” Previously, bass player Jared Followill had previously explained that the new album sounds a lot like the band’s first releases. “I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds,” he told NME. “It’s like a mix of [our 2003 debut album] ‘Youth and Young Manhood’ and [2007’s] ‘Because of the Times.’”
