Nashville alt-rockers Kings of Leon have made their return with their first album in five years, When You See Yourself.
The new 11-track collection, which marks the follow-up to 2016’s Walls, sees the band at their most comfortable yet, embracing a more mature, laid-back sound. From the playful energy of “The Bandit” to singing of climate change on “Claire And Eddie” to the nostalgia-ridden “Golden Restless Age,” the album sees Kings of Leon in a state of introspection.
From high-energy bursts to wise, speculative ballads, Kings of Leon have learned to weave between a sort of tender softness and a wailing electricity.

Earlier this week, Kings of Leon revealed that they would be the first band to release a full album in NFT (“non-fungible token”) form. For context, NFTs are a form of cryptocurrency for art, where images, videos, music, and concert tickets are sold on an online marketplace such as Bitcoin.
