Kings Of Leon to release new album in 2010

Band reveal plans for 'Only By The Night' follow-up

Kings Of Leon have revealed that they plan to release a new album next year.

The Followill brothers said that the plan was to record the follow-up to ‘Only By The Night’ after 2009 touring duties were over – and release it in the latter half of 2010.

“We’re touring until the end of this year so we can’t start until 2010 but it’ll come out probably fall of 2010,” guitarist Matthew Followill told BBC 6 Music. He added that the album may be “a little grungier” than previous efforts.


Bassist Jared Followill said that the band had already started work on writing for the album. “The next album that we make, that we’re already working on, I can assure you, is one that I’m the most excited about,” he said.

He added: “We haven’t really got down to lyrics yet but (we have) a lot of good stuff. It’s cool.”

Kings Of Leon won the Best International Album and Best International Group awards at the BRIT awards last night (February 18).
