Kings of Leon Unveil Moody Single ‘Split Screen’

The song will appear on the band’s forthcoming LP, Can We Please Have Fun

Kings of Leon have shared a new single, “Split Screen.” The song 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 “lands in the middle of the album, a more meditative section of songs that favor texture and atmosphere.”

“We like this song,” the band said in a statement. “We thought the fans would like it too. ‘Split Screen’ may give people a little insight into the depth of the album, coming off of hearing ‘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 Followill 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.
