Jared Followill of Kings of Leon, who have Oklahoma City and Talihina ties but are now based in Nashville, Tenn., and Nick Brown of fellow Nashville band Mona have debuted the music video for “No Tell,” the first single from their new side project Smoke & Jackal.
The video is NSFW (not safe for work) because it contains nudity. If you want to watch it regardless, you can link to it here.
Smoke & Jackal will release the six-track “EP1″ on Oct. 15, according to NME.com. The pair began recording together earlier in 2012, and “No Tell” was written on the first night they collaborated at Brown’s own home studio in Nashville.
Jared Followill also said recently that his work on Smoke & Jackal’s EP has helped him prepare for Kings of Leon’s upcoming album, reports NME.com:
“Even doing the side project got my creative juices flowing again and just doing something completely different, I feel like it can bring more creativity to our band,” the KOL bassist said.
The Kings of Leon – along with Jared Followill, the band includes his brothers singer Caleb Followill and drummer Nathan Followill and their cousin, guitarist Matthew Followill – are apparently gearing up to make their sixth studio album, the followup to 2010′s “Come Around Sundown.”
“We’ve been meeting with producers every day so we’re starting to get the ball rolling on album six. I don’t know what I can say, but we’re definitely planning on starting the record some point in the near future,” Jared Followill said in a recent interview, adding,
“Caleb has been writing a lot, and yeah, I think it’s going to go really well.”
