Kings of Leon Share One-Take Music Video for Single ‘Nothing To Do’

The song comes off the rock band’s forthcoming album, Can We Please Have Fun

Kings of Leon have dropped a new single, “Nothing To Do,” along with a music video for the track shot by frontman Caleb Followill. The hand-held clip was directed by Kings of Leon and Casey McGrath, with Followill shooting the entire thing in one take.

The raucous song sees the band taking on a more high energy vibe as Followill sings,
“I’m a man on a mission of going insane/ There’s a gold in the breeze/ It’s running in your hair/ Is it in my head is neither here nor there/ And a picture framed of the day we met/ It’s a mystery/ How could i forget that you/ You want nothing to do with love.”

“Nothing To Do” will appear on the rock band’s forthcoming 9th LP, Can We Please Have Fun, out on May 10 via Capitol Records. A press release notes that the song “delves into their post-punk sound with its jagged guitar riffs and propulsive drumming.” It follows their prior singles “Split Screen” and “Mustang.”

Can We Please Have Fun, produced by Kid Harpoon and the band’s first as part of their new deal with Capitol Records, was recorded at Nashville’s Dark Horse studio. The band previously released “Mustang,” Kings of Leon’s first new music since their 2021 LP, When You See Yourself. The group said Can We Please Have Fun is the album they’ve been hoping to make for years.


“It was the most enjoyable record I’ve ever been a part of,” Caleb said in a statement. “It’s like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable,” Nathan Followill added, “I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn’t have to be on 11.”

The band recently announced a North American tour kicking off in August in Austin. The trek, which includes stops in Boston, Nashville, and Seattle, concludes in Bridgeport, CT on Oct. 5.
