Kings of Leon deliberate sabotaged songs
Kings of Leon deliberately made some songs on their new record worse than they could have been.
The rock group admit struggling with the sound of their next album 'Come Around Sundown', and wrestled with making songs either more or less radio friendly.
Bass player Jared Followill said: "Every once in a while, someone would be like, 'Let's make this worse than it can be,' and then there were other times when someone would say, 'let's make this more popular than it should be.'
"There was a different type of tension on this record. The only thing I care about is writing good songs. I don't want to consciously write a popular song, but at the same time, I don't want us cutting off our nose to spite our face."
The band - which also includes Jared's brothers Caleb and Nathan and cousin Matthew - also reportedly didn't suffer any of the legendary in-fights or fallouts which have occurred during the recording of their other four albums.
Matthew added: "It's been one the smoothest records we've ever made. No arguments, no fistfights. Nothing like that."Posted on 20 Aug 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
