Kings Of Leon needed to take it back home.
After their astonishing growth, their newfound stadium swagger, the Followills recognised a need to go back to where it began.
So they returned to Nashville. Last year's 'Mechanical Form' was a raw, lustful effort which saw the band attempt to re-capture the energy of their debut.
For the most part, it worked. Clash editor Simon Harper labelled it "a strong, engaging return to form" while the subsequent tour saw Kings Of Leon probe their very public youth and young manhood.
Album cut 'Temple' was released as a Stateside single, with a video now emerging online. Shot in as basic a format as possible, it is interspersed with footage which looks for all the world like their own native Nashville.
Watch it now.
