Kings Of Leon have revealed new track 'Wait For Me'. Scroll up to hear the song in full now.

'Wait For Me' is the latest song to be taken from the US band's forthcoming sixth studio album 'Mechanical Bull', due for release on September 24. Fans pre-ordering the album from iTunes will receive 'Wait For Me' instantly, ahead of the rest of the album. The band will perform a special show at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire this Friday (August 9) ahead of a headline slot at V Festival 2013.

Bassist Jared Followill told NME in March of this year: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds." Since then, Jared has revealed that the album is "more musically complicated" than the band's previous efforts. In a Q&A with fans on Twitter in May 27, he also said the "vibe" of the record could be compared to their first two albums - 2003's 'Youth & Young Manhood' and 2004's 'Aha Shake Heartbreak' - but that the songs sounded like a "culmination" of all their previous work.

Caleb Followill has said that the band had felt under no pressure while making the highly-anticipated new LP. "I think the last one took the pressure off us," he said. "'Come Around Sundown' followed up what was at the point the biggest record of our career [2008's 'Only By The Night'], so going into this record it was like, 'The monkey's off our back, we don't have that pressure of whether we're going to be able to match what the last record did.' We changed it up a bit on this record."
