After teasing activity on their social media accounts, Kings of Leon have revealed plans to release their ninth studio album, Can We Please Have Fun. The collection is out on May 10 through Capitol Records. The album was recorded at Dark Horse studio in Nashville. It was produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles, Florence + the Machine)

“It was the most enjoyable record I’ve ever been a part of,” singer Caleb Followill says.

More from Spin:

“It’s like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable,” drummer Nathan Followill adds. “I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn’t have to be on 11.”

Today (Feb. 22), the band unveiled the album’s first single, “Mustang.” They released a video for the song, which you can see below.

Kings of Leon will be touring in support of Can We Please Have Fun. Tickets go on sale March 1. The tour kicks off on June 30 at London’s Hyde Park as part of the annual BST. The North American leg starts on Aug. 14 in Austin at the Moody Center before wrapping on Oct. 5 in Bridgeport, CT.

The band’s previous album was 2021’s When You See Yourself. Revisit our cover story on the band from that time here.
