New Tracks: Kings of Leon- Wait For Me

Kings of Leon have released the first single to drop from their upcoming 6th studio full- length "Mechanical Bull", and it's entitled "Wait For Me." The song largely reflects the sound of later era- Kings records. It's a stand up but subtle anthem, comprising of meandering, reverb- soaked guitar lines and a chorus that keeps it's cool but is likely to unashamedly lodge itself in your brain.

The song is distinctly pretty and catchy, but there's nothing particularly edgy or interesting about it. Essentially, it's a slightly more pleasant take on the "radio rock by numbers" that Kings Of Leon have been dabbling in since 2008's "Only By The Night." All that being said, it's certainly a lot more enjoyable than most of what was on 2010's resignedly poor "Come Around Sundown."

"Mechanical Bull" is due to be released on 23rd September via RCA Records.
