Earlier this week, Kings of Leon announced their brand new, Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles, Florence + the Machine) produced  album ‘Can We Please Have Fun’, out 10 May via Polydor Records. The album’s hard-charging lead single “Mustang” is available now, accompanied by a high-flying music video that sets the pace for the rest of the album.  
‘Can We Please Have Fun’, as its title suggests is a document of one of this era’s great rock & roll bands cutting loose, trying new things, and yes, having some fun. Recorded at Dark Horse studio and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon, the album sees the band hark back to their gritty origins, while simultaneously finding new gears. It’s the sound of a band unified in vision and purpose, freed from any expectations and the album the band says they’ve always wanted to make.
