Rockers Kings Of Leon have revealed the band’s New Year’s resolution: to finish up the follow-up to 2013 album Mechanical Bull.
Drummer Nathan Followill said in an interview with the Associated Press: “We’ve already started pre-production in our studio for the next record, but the main thing on the calendar for 2016 is getting the record finished. And then the whole press machine kicks up and doing press for the record.”
His band mate and brother, singer Caleb Followill chimed in by saying: “We enjoy this part of the process. Obviously there’s a lot of work that goes into it and it can get stressful at times, but we’re all in a good place and we’re having fun with it and we’re all excited to do something new.”
The band is intimating that the album is more than likely going to be recorded in LA. Singer, Caleb says the band is looking for inspiration: “We might just try to get a little change of scenery. Our first two albums we recorded in L.A., so we’re going to try to go back and see if it inspires us, if it doesn’t, we always have a studio at home, so we can always come back.”
For his New Year’s resolution, Caleb has resolved “to enjoy what we’re doing a bit more,” and “to try and be a better me.”
Earlier last year, around June time, it was suggested the recording of the album was already going on, and was taking place in a 174-year-old house in Nashville.
“It’s a really rad place and I think we can do something cool with it.”
Caleb said of the house at the time. “And you know if we go in there and it sounds like shit, we can just go across the street to our [Nashville] studio.”
We’ll keep our fingers crossed that boys can hold it together and give us another barnstorming record like before. As soon as we have the official release date we’ll let you know, right here at Rock My World.
