Kings Of Leon – “Wait For Me”

The first single to be released off Kings Of Leon’s forthcoming Mechanical Bull, “Supersoaker,” saw the Followill brothers returning to their harder-edged rock roots. Its follow-up is a pretty straightforward power ballad that seems scientifically engineered to spend a few weeks at No. 1. It kinda reminds me of those songs that made Candlebox famous back in the early ’90s, if you want my honest opinion, although that bridge is pretty damn tight just the same. Check it out.

Mechanical Bull is out 9/24 via RCA.
