Kings of Leon have started pre-production for a new album, their first since 2013’s Mechanical Bull.
“The main thing on the calendar for 2016 is getting the record finished,” drummer Nathan Followill tells AP. “And then the whole press machine kicks up and doing press for the record.”
Singer-guitarist Caleb Followill adds, “We’re all in a good place … and we’re all excited to do something new.”
The band is planning to record in Los Angeles rather than Nashville, which has been their home base for the past 15 years.
“Our first two albums we recorded in L.A., so we’re going to try to go back and see if it inspires us,” Caleb says. “If it doesn’t, we always have a studio at home, so we can always come back.”
