For the long-awaited new track ‘Waste A Moment’, the band enlisted the help of producer Markus Dravs, known for his work with Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons as well as Coldplay.

Fortunately, ‘Waste a Moment’ has enough classic Leon sounds in it to please even the biggest Sex On Fire haters. Caleb Followill’s lyrics are almost completely inaudible, the drums are heavy, and the guitars sound as though they were ripped right off of Only By The Night, But the hallmarks of the Kings of Leon remain intact on “Waste a Moment”: nubby guitars, a firm beat and Followill’s weary croon.
On the track, singer Caleb Followill urges listeners to step away from the daily grind, if only for a second: “Take the time to waste a moment,” he sings. “Never ask to be forgiven.”

The band plans to release new album “Walls” on October 14th.

“We’re in the best place we’ve ever been,” quoted Caleb . “We’re enjoying what we’re doing, and we have a great relationship outside of making music. A lot of bands don’t make it this long, especially family bands. Right now we’re more excited than we’ve ever been to work.”

The singer/guitarist has high hopes for the new record. “We’re trying to change people’s perception of [us],” he said. “We have more depth on this album and more situations where we dipped our toe in before but never committed. Now we’re wanting to dive in. I know this is a pop-driven world and what we do isn’t necessarily at the top of the heap of music that people are listening to, but I feel like once people discover this album, it’s going to change them.”

Kings of Leon’s last album, Mechanical Bull, came out in 2013.
