Kings of Leon Create 'Darker' Album

Kings of Leon is putting the finishing touches on their fifth album.

Drummer Nathan Followill (left) tells Billboard that KoL and producers Jacquire King and Angelo Petraglia “did a majority of (the album) in New York City and decided to come home to do the last couple of weeks just to fool around and do it at home [in Nashville].”

KoL last released their 2008 platinum and Grammy Award-winning album, Only By the Night. “Honestly, with the success of the last record…a lot of people thought we would put a lot of pressure on ourselves and go in there and try to recreate what we thought was successful on the last record,” Nathan noted. “It’s the first time we’ve ever recorded in New York City, (so) we thought we’d come out with a little darker record ’cause we’d done all our (other) records in either Nashville or L.A., where it’s a little more chilled out, not as much hustle and bustle.”

He added, “And I’ll be damned if we didn’t go in there and make a fun record. It’s got songs that are beachy. It’s got songs that are a little more of our (2003 debut album) Youth and Young Manhood days — pretty much all across the board. We’re super excited. Everything, we feel, fits perfectly for this project. It’ll be interesting to see how well-received it is.”

Kelly Clarkson Covers Kings of Leon's 'Use Somebody'

Kelly Clarkson mashes two cover songs together — Alanis Morissette‘s “That I Would Be Good” and Kings of Leon‘s “Use Somebody” — while kicking off her “All I Ever Wanted” tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday (October 2) in Uncasville, Conn.

On Sunday, the 27-year-old American Idol champ will be performing at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine. And then on Tuesday, Kelly will play NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Woot!

FYI: Just last week, KoL‘s single “Use Somebody” hit the #1 spot on the Top 40 Radio charts in both airplay and audience. Amazingly, this is happening exactly one year after their album Only By The Night was released.
