This year’s big festival headliners Kings of Leon are offering a taster of their forthcoming new album titled Only By The Night which is out on 23rd September. The song is called ‘Crawl’ and can be downloaded here for a dirty email exchange.
‘Crawl’ is a simple recording with the instruments in widescreen, made for the stadium. So much so it sounds like a live version. It is underlined by some fuzzy bass, funky guitar riffs and Jared singing “You better crawl before I walk away“. Harsh dude. There’s a youtubular version below.
This is a trailer teaser for the album. Interesting to note that the song which soundtracks the video apes Whitney Huston’s ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ in the vocal inflections on the word “Somebody”.
