Kings of Leon Announce New Album, ‘Walls’


Story by Cat Badra

Kings of Leon’s new studio set, ‘Walls,’ drops in October

Kings of Leon will drop their seventh studio effort, “Walls,” on Oct. 14. One big difference on this album is that the family members – brothers Caleb,Nathan and Jared Followill and cousin Matthew Followill — now have a “better, stronger ­relationship ­outside of music than we did in the past,” they told Billboard.

The guys are ready to get back to doing music, too.

“There comes a point when you realize you’ve lost that passion and that hunger,” Caleb told Billboard. “You’re chastened and want to get it back — and in order to get it back it’s like, ‘Forget about record sales, forget about the size of the venue you’re playing, forget about any of that stuff.'”

This time around, Kings of Leon tapped Markus Dravs to produce the set. His resume includes working with Arcade Fire and Mumford & Sons.

“(Dravs) just said things that nobody had ever said to us,” Jared said. “Like, ‘I don’t like that song, that’s not good, we can move on from that.'”

“Walls” will mark the band’s follow-up to 2013’s “Mechanical Bull.”

Kings of Leon’s ‘Walls’ Track List:

“Waste a Moment”
“Around the World”
“Find Me”
“Conversation Piece”
“Eyes on You”
