Kings Of Leon working on new material

Caleb's writing the follow-up to 'Because Of The Times'

Despite their new album having been released just a week ago, Kings Of Leon are already well into writing material that may well feature on their fourth record.

Speaking to NME.COM, frontman Caleb Followill revealed he has been working on brand new material but is avoiding adding lyrics just yet.

“I’m writing stuff right now, but I’m trying not to write the lyrics because as soon as they’ lyrics are written we’re going to want tp play it. Our record’s ( ‘Because Of The Times’) been finished for about a year and we’ve been sitting her twiddling our thumbs waiting for the label to put it out, so we’re ready to continue on writing songs.

Having entered the UK charts at Number One, the album is one that Followill is proud of.

He said: “For the most part, if I can listen to it and not jump off a bridge, then I think it’s good.

“I don’t sit around listening to our music, but the other day my cousin wanted to hear it, and so I put it on and it was the first time I listened to it since we recorded it sounded good and fresh and I was proud of it.”
