Kings Of Leon were not asked if they could have their music featured on the TV show Glee, despite the band saying they had been approached.

As previously reported, Bassist Jared Followill told NME the group had turned down an offer to have their music used on the show.

"The Kings Of Leon thing I didn't really understand because we didn't approach them," Ian Brennan, the show's co-creator, told The Canadian Press. "I don't know where that came from."

He added: "I would say probably 80 per-cent of the people who you heard are going to be on Glee is probably news to us."

Meanwhile, Kings Of Leon will release their new album 'Come Around Sundown' on October 18 and will embark on a UK arena tour in December.
