Following the Kings of Leon's release of their new album, Mechanical Bull, bass player Jared Followill says that fans should not necessarily take any one of its songs to have a particular meaning. "So many of our songs can be interpreted in so many different ways," Jared told HitFix.com.
Followill continued: "At the time you can actually write something, and it can be completely abstract to you at the time, and then a year later something will happen to you and you'll listen back and be like, 'Wow, that song sounds like it was written perfectly for the situation.'"
The new song "On the Chin," for instance, was written for Caleb Followill's friend, JD. But Jared explains that "you hear it and it can mean so much. It can fit so many different situations. It can be for all of us together, it can be for our wives. I like songs that are open to interpretation."
Mechanical Bull is the Nashville group's sixth album, and the follow-up to 2010's Come Around Sundown.
