Kings Of Leon performed ‘Waste a Moment’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (October 14).
‘Waste a Moment’ serves as the opening track to ‘WALLS’ – the band’s seventh studio album which was released yesterday (October 14).
The follow-up to 2013’s ‘Mechanical Bull’, the LP was recorded in Los Angeles with Coldplay and Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs. The album’s title is short for ‘We Are Like Love Songs’. You can watch the performance below.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift recently gave the album a rave review on her Instagram. Sharing a screen-grab of her listening to ‘WALLS’ on her phone, the singer wrote: “I’ve been waiting for this album for SO LONG and it’s insane, you need it in your life. Congratulations @kingsofleon #walls.”
When asked by NME if the band had ‘lost their edge’, frontman Caleb Followill replied: “If there was a movie made of our lives, in the last few years we had a lot of edge. Those are the moments in the movie that you’d wanna watch!”
They continued: “What we were doing early on was storybook, classic, what a band should be; the drugs and the booze and the girls. Now we consider what we’re doing a little more and if that’s losing your edge… maybe, I dunno. When you look at the bands that still had their edge, most of them, their music is shit so it doesn’t fucking matter about the edge.”
