Jared Followill confirmed this morning that the band’s sixth studio album will be released in September 2013. The most surprising news, as Jared told NME, is that it’s apparently going to sound like a mix of the first and third records.
“I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds. It’s like a mix of ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ and ‘Because Of The Times’.”
The band will play a number of festival dates this summer, and I’ll try to update this page with more frequency.
Are you excited that KoL’s sixth record will sound like Youth and Young Manhood and Because of the Times, or did you hope for a continuation of Come Around Sundown?
