Kings of Leon plan live DVD and a remix album
Nathan Followill also reveals whether the band will contribute to "New Moon"
While the Kings of Leon are still riding high on the charts with "Only By the Night," the Followill boys are already thinking ahead to their next two releases. Coming within the next several months will be both a live DVD and a remix album, Nathan Followill tells Billboard.
The quartet filmed the live album at London's O2 Arena in July. "England is really the first place we broke," Followill says. "We figured what better place to make a live DVD than where the fans have been the craziest for the longest?"
The remix album will feature contributions by Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Mark Ronson, Kenna, Linkin Park, Lykke Li and others. On a side note, if you haven't checked it out yet, Sugarland does a great cover of "Sex on Fire." Who knew?
Regarding a new album, Nathan Followill says the band has a few ideas "kicking around...The new stuff is all over the place," he reports. "I call it 'Aha Shake...' but by guys that are a little grown-up and a little better at their instruments. There's stuff that sounds like Radiohead. There's stuff that sounds like Thin Lizzy. There's stuff that sounds like The Band. We're pretty much to the point now where...we can be experimental and try stuff we would've been scared to death to try on the first couple of records. Now we find ourselves being a little more adventurous."
No release dates for the DVD or remix album have been set.
