Rockers Kings of Leon, who have Oklahoma ties, are working on several project this fall and starting to focus on the followup album to their 2008 platinum release “Only by the Night.”
In an interview with Billboard.com, drummer Nathan Followill said the band is planning to release a live DVD that was filmed in July at London’s O2 Arena. The show featured some “choice rarities” for the DVD.
“England is really the first place we broke…We figured what better place to make a live DVD than where the fans have been the craziest for the longest?” he told Billboard.com.
He also said the band is working on remix album, a project that started when the quartet learned other artists such as Justin Timberlake and Pharrell had started working on alternative versions of Kings of Leon songs.
Along with Pharrell and Timberlake, Mark Ronson, Kenna, Lykke Li and Linkin Park are contributing remixes to the forthcoming album, Followill told the trade publication.
“It’s neat to have these people who we would’ve jumped at the chance to work with ourselves…coming to us before we even get a chance to ask them,” he told Billboard.com. ”It’s amazing to hear your song played by these people who are so creative. Most of the time it takes me two or three listens to even wrap my head around, ‘Oh man, that’s our song…’”
One big fall activity the band won’t be a part of: Contrary to the rumor, Followill says Kings of Leon won’t be contributing any music to the soundtrack for “New Moon,” the second film in the “Twilight” series. That’s a pity, since I think any contribution from the Followills would have instantly enhanced that soundtrack.
