Kings of Leon are kicking off 2024 with a string of major announcements. Alongside news of a new label partnership with Capitol Records, the band has announced their upcoming 9th full-length studio album, Can We Please Have Fun, out on May 10.


The hard-charging lead single, "Mustang" is available now, accompanied by a high-flying music video that sets the pace for the album. You can check it out below.



Kings of Leon also announce a 2024 World Tour. The tour, produced by Live Nation in North America, will hit 26 cities across the US and Canada, starting August 14, 2024. Kings of Leon will also tour internationally with a headline set at BST Hyde Park in London on Sunday June 30 announced today. Additional international dates to be announced shortly. General on sale for North American tickets will begin Friday, March 1 at 10am local time via Ticketmaster. Visit Kings Of Leon's official website for further information.


Can We Please Have Fun, as its title suggests, is a document of one of this era's great rock & roll bands cutting loose, trying new things, and, yes, having some fun. Recorded at Dark Horse studio in Nashville and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles, Florence + the Machine) the album sees a new side of Kings of Leon. On the new album, the band harkens back to their gritty origins while simultaneously finding new gears. It's the sound of a band unified in vision and purpose, freed from any expectations, and the album the band says they've always wanted to make.


"It was the most enjoyable record I've ever been a part of," Caleb Followill says. "It's like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable," Nathan adds. "I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn't have to be on 11."


The group is gearing up for a monumental year, and they're ready to take the world by storm. "When you have a band, there's a bond like no other, and when you have family, you have a bond like no other," Caleb says. "We have both of those things. I thought, if we put all our energy toward something, who is gonna stop us? Who can stop us except us?"
