Kings of Leon album 'ad-libbed'

Thursday, 30th Sep 2010

Caleb Followill, the lead singer with Kings of Leon, has admitted that he did not sit down to pen the lyrics for the new album.

The performer explained to Uncut magazine that all of the words on new recording Come Around Sundown were made up on the spot in the studio.

"I didn't write lyrics," he explained. "I went in and ad-libbed, I free-floated everything. The closer it got to the end, I felt like, 'Man, you didn't do your job.'"

He told the publication that he had planned to go back and work more on the tracks but was stopped by the other people helping to create the record who told him the lyrics were fine as they were.

The new album, a follow-up to 2007's Only By The Night - which featured the hits Sex on Fire and Use Somebody - is set to be released on the UK on October 18th 2010.
