Kings Of Leon Begin Recording Their Seventh Album

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, spoke with Sirius XM about their upcoming new material.

The singer confirmed the band will be recording their seventh record in Nashville Tennessee, in a 174-year-old house.

The band’s 2013 LP Mechanical Bull, was the group’s sixth studio album, going to number 1 on the Irish album chart.

Speaking to Sirius XM Followill said: “It’s a really rad place and I think we can do something cool with it. You know if we go in there and it sounds like shit, we can just go across the street to our [Nashville] studio.”

Speculating about when the record will be completed, Caleb said: “Record number seven, most people take like five years to make that or something? We’re still in our very early stages of our five-year plan for this next record.”

Discussing the group’s recording schedule earlier this year, Followill told Billboard that, “we’re always working on music.”

The singer said: “The other day we had a rehearsal and we ended up going in there and just writing music and we didn’t rehearse at all. But that’s kind of how we do it — if you put us in a room together with our instruments it’s hard for us to dwell on the past and play something we’ve played a million times.We would much rather create, so I think that what we have so far is really fun stuff.”

Drummer Nathan Followill added that the new tracks are, “being received well. We’re super excited to play the new songs every night, and it’s fun to watch the crowd reaction and see which ones they know all the words to and the ones they don’t know anything about.”
