Their latest single–their first since releasing Come Around Sundown in 2010–is a return to their early days of energetic, kick drum heavy country rock. On the chorus, Caleb Followill growls,”I don’t mind sentimental girls at times,” as his bandmates join in, guitars a blazing.
Mechanical Bull was recorded at the group’s home studio in Nashville, TN, and was produced by longtime KOL collaborator, Angelo Petraglia. “I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I’m amazed how youthful it sounds,” bassist Jared Followill told NME. “It’s like a mix of Youth & Young Manhood and Because Of The Times.”
