A rep for the band tells Billboard 'Walls' is the title of its seventh studio album.
In June 2015, Kings of Leon said they were starting work on their seventh studio album in a 174-year-old house in their home base of Nashville. That was over a year ago, and it appears the festival favorites are gearing up to share what came out of those sessions.
Over the past several days, Kings of Leon shared a series of brief videos over their online socials. One posted yesterday (Aug. 21) flashes the titles of their six previous LPs and ends with the promise, “7 is coming.” The newer video, shared today (Aug. 22), features a sequence of eerie and seductive images set to an ominous hum and a heartbeat-like pattern. It ends with a voice saying, “Walls come down.” A rep from the band tells Billboard that Walls is the title of the forthcoming album.
