If you should happen to be starting out your weekend feeling as though you're already overbooked, you're in luck: Kings of Leon are here to provide you with "Nothing to Do."

Of course, by providing you with the opportunity to "play" on the song - whether it's the audio, which is available on all your favorite streaming services, or the video, which can be found either on YouTube or elsewhere on this very page - we've already defied the song by giving you something to do, but at least it's the sort of something that has the potential to serve as an extremely enjoyable soundtrack to your weekend.

The band, which consists of brothers Caleb, Nathan, and Jared Followill and their cousin Matthew Followill, recently signed a new label partnership with Geffen Records, Capitol Records, and Universal Music Canada for the release of their upcoming album, Can We Please Have Fun, scheduled for a May 10 release.

Can We Please Have Fun – Tracklist:

  1. Ballerina Radio
  2. Rainbow Ball
  3. Nowhere To Run
  4. Mustang
  5. Actual Daydream
  6. Split Screen
  7. Don’t Stop The Bleeding
  8. Nothing To Do
  9. Television
  10. Hesitation Generation
  11. Ease Me On
  12. Seen

In a press release issued in connection with the announcement of the album, Caleb called it “the most enjoyable record I’ve ever been a part of,” while Nathan acknowledged, “I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn’t have to be on 11.”

“When you have a band, there’s a bond like no other, and when you have family, you have a bond like no other,” added Caleb. “We have both of those things. I thought, if we put all our energy toward something, who is gonna stop us? Who can stop us except us?”

It's a fair question, one we hope the band never has to answer. Better they should focus on the music and the promotion of the aforementioned new album, which also includes the previously-issued singles "Split-Screen" and 'Mustang." The LP was produced by Kid Harpoon, Grammy and BRIT award winner in 2023 for Harry Styles' Harry's House and 2024 Grammy winner for Miley Cyrus' "Flowers."
