Jakarta. Rock band Kings of Leon is aiming to finish its new album this year, according to a recent 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,” said the group’s drummer Nathan Followill.
Vocalist Caleb Followill also mentioned the group was enjoying this part of their record-making 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,” he said.
Established in Nashville sixteen years ago, Kings of Leon has so far released six studio albums — the latest, “Mechanical Bull,” was released in 2013. The band achieved chart success in the United States with “Only by the Night” in 2008, which spurned successful singles like “Use Somebody” and “Sex on Fire.”
For the new album, Caleb said the band might try to split the recording between Nashville and Los Angeles.
“Our first two albums we recorded in LA, so we’re going to try to go back and see if it inspires us,” he said. “If it doesn’t, we always have a studio at home, so we can always come back.”
