After 'Supersoaker' debuted, Kings of Leon's new track 'Wait For Me' from upcoming album 'Mechanical Bull' is unveiled.
Kings of Leon have unveiled the second single from their upcoming fifth record, Mechanical Bull, entitled 'Wait For Me.' We've already heard 'Supersoaker' after they debuted the lead single live in New York and thought it was mechanical marvelousness but could the band's second single live up to their first?
Kings Of Leon Are Gearing Up To Drop Their Fifth Album, Mechanical Bull.
The answer is an emphatic yes: the strength of 'Wait For Me' lies in its stand-out chorus, slowed down tempo, thoughtful lyrics and back-to-roots earnest guitar work. "It's all better now, it's all better now, wait for me," sings Caleb Followill during the rather anthemic chorus, mixing his repeated lyrics with "woahs" over soaring guitar notes. It's easy to imagine the song becoming an end of show classic to unite the crowd and band.

'Wait For Me' could well be the perfect summer sunset driving song and it will be exciting to see the band play their new tracks at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire this Friday (9th August) ahead of their V Festival headline slot towards the end of the month.

KoL bassist Jared Followill spoke to NME back in March about their upcoming album, Mechanical Bull: "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds."

Frontman Caleb has revealed their relaxed attitude to album 5 after the consistent success of their previous four records: "I think the last one took the pressure off us. Come Around Sundown followed up what was at the point the biggest record of our career [2008's Only By The Night], so going into this record it was like, 'The monkey's off our back, we don't have that pressure of whether we're going to be able to match what the last record did. We changed it up a bit on this record."
Looks Like The Band Are Set For Another Mighty Successful Album.
The Nashville band described the vibe of Mechanical Bull to fans in a Twitter Q&A session back in May, and said that album 5 could be compared to their first two albums - 2003's Youth & Young Manhood and 2004's Aha Shake Heartbreak but that collectively the songs sounded like a "culmination" of all their previous work.
Mechanical Bull is available to pre-order on iTunes now and will be released on 24th September.
