Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill recently described the record as "the most immature album ever made". Speaking to Metro, the youngest brother went on to expand on his point, explaining how the studio was full of practical jokes and a world away from the tensions surrounding last album 'Come Around Sundown'. "Fake rats, gun caps popping everywhere. We basically goofed off the entire time," reveals the bassist of the band's Nashville recording sessions.

Meanwhile, the band also revealed that making 2010's 'Come Around Sundown' "was not fun". Continuing on, the Followill brothers went into detail about the fall-out from their last record, explaining the difficulties in making the album and the band's burn-out around the time. "Making 'Come Around Sundown' was just not fun. We were in a tiny studio in New York, there was too much alcohol around all day – I’m just glad we made it back together," said guitarist Matthew. Bassist and youngest brother Jared, meanwhile, added that, "There was definitely an internal struggle – you couldn’t even say 'radio airplay' without Caleb getting angry. We’d been called sell-outs after 'Sex On Fire'. He didn’t want people to think that was all we’d tried to do."
