Can’t wait for the Kings of Leon’s brand new album? Yesterday, bassist, Jared Followill, took to Twitter chat to answer some questions about it. For those who loved early Kings of Leon albums like Youth and the Young Manhood and Aha Shake Heartbreak, this next one could be a return to that sound–with some added musical prowess.
When asked what era of the Kings of Leon’s music their new album sounds most like he replied, “Vibe/feeling could be compared to the first couple. It’s much more musically complicated though, so I’d have to say the last 2. [sic]“
The Nashville rockers gave fans a first taste of the album when they debuted a brand new song called, “It Don’t Matter,” live at the Bottle Rock festival in Napa, California earlier this month. The edgy and fast-paced song inspired comparisons to Queens of the Stoneage for its heavy guitar riffs and unpolished vocals.
“It Don’t Matter,” is the first song fans have heard from the King’s upcoming studio album that is rumored to be released in September. Gearing up for its big reveal, the band has been appearing at festivals around the world. This summer they’ll headline V Fest alongside Beyoncé stopping in cities like New York, London and Belfast on the way there.
