LISTEN: Sam interviews Jared from Kings of Leon

New album coming March 5th!

Kings of Leon are set to release their first new album in FIVE YEARS. When You See Yourself is due out March 5th and bassist Jared Followill spoke with Sam over the phone about how long this album has ACTUALLY been in the works.

He explains that it was completely finished in December of 2019, but due to the pandemic they decided to wait an entire year to release it. Followill says that it felt like torture to have to sit on something they were so proud of for over a year. He also talked about the beautiful silver lining that was being able to be home with his newborn daughter during lockdown.

I am pretty much just like you. I was born and raised in Tampa Bay (the Burg to be exact). I went to St. Pete High (go Green Devils!), then graduated from USF with a Bachelor’s in Communications.
