Kings of Leon

Kings of Leon are planning their new album and for it they'll return to the same Nashville neighborhood as the one they holed up in, building their own recording studio, for 2013's Mechanical Bull. Only this time around, they'll occupy the 174-year-old house across the street and get to work there.

"It's a really rad place and I think we can do something cool with it," frontman Caleb Followill told Sirius XM Music. "And you know if we go in there and it sounds like shit, we can just go across the street to our studio."

Followill said they should have the new album written by the end of the year and will try working on it in this new house, which was built in 1841 and used to belong to Dolly Parton's engineer.

But that doesn't necessarily mean the album's coming soon. Followill joked that their seventh LP might take some time yet. 

"Record number seven, most people take like five years to make that or something?" he said. "We're still in our very early stages of our five-year plan for this next record."
