Kings of Leon Tease New Album 'Walls' in Video Clips: Is It Arriving This Year?
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.
"We are so excited to share this album," bassist Jared Followill tweeted yesterday. "It's unlike anything we've done before. You guys are going to fall in love with these songs."
Stereogum points out potential evidence of a lead single over on the All Access Music Group’s database of songs and albums impacting Triple A radio. According to the registry, a Kings of Leon song called “Waste A Moment” impacts the format on Sept. 12, via RCA.
Kings of Leon’s last full-length was 2013’s Mechanical Bull.
