Kings of Leon will release their sixth studio album titled Mechanical Bull on September 24, as confirmed by Jimmy Fallon last week on his late night talk show.

Mechanical Bull is the follow up to the bands 2010 album Come Around Sundown. The upcoming album is being released on RCA Records and was recorded in Nashville with their producer Angelo Petraglia.

Speaking to NME, bassist Jared Followill said, "I thought we were going to make a really mature album but I'm amazed how youthful it sounds. It's like a mix of 'Youth & Young Manhood' and 'Because Of The Times'."

In a Q&A chat with fans on Twitter when asked if the new album sounded like their earlier or later albums, Followill responded, “Vibe/feeling could be compared to the first couple. It's much more musically complicated though, so I'd have to say the last 2.”

The lead single for the album, “Super Soaker,” is set to hit the airwaves in mid July.

The band played a new song, “It Don’t Matter,” for the first time in May.
