“Mustang,” the new single by Kings of Leon, heralds a promising return for the Southern rock icons. Positioned as the lead single from their upcoming album, “Can We Please Have Fun,” this track delivers a raw and gritty energy that immediately grabs the listener’s attention.

Produced by Kid Harpoon, “Mustang” offers an infectious blend of rock and rebellion. From the opening chords, the song captivates with its unapologetic swagger. Frontman Caleb Followill’s vocals soar above the instrumentation, guiding listeners through a journey of introspection and defiance.

The accompanying music video, directed by Brook Linder, enhances the song’s impact with its visual narrative of freedom and also self-expression.
