The Nashville rockers released the new track “Goin’ Nowhere” on YouTube amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
As people are encouraged to stay home and practice social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak, southern rockers Kings of Leon decided to release a new song, “Goin’ Nowhere”, onto YouTube yesterday. As the title suggests, the emotional ballad is about the rock band dealing with staying indoors and “Goin’ Nowhere”. The accompanying black-and-white music video, filmed live from their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee by videographer Casey McGrath, shows frontman Caleb Followill sitting alone in an empty room with an acoustic guitar and mic as he sings the song.
The track comes during a time of crisis as people are staying indoors in a worldwide effort to prevent the COVID-19 global pandemic from spreading. The music video description reads, “Stay safe. Stay home. We will see you as soon as we can.” It’s going to be a “long hard road” until anybody can get to their loved ones as they’ll be “holding on, until the sun comes shining through”. If you are going nowhere and got the time, you can watch and listen below.
The four-man group previously released their seventh studio album, WALLS, in 2016. It is Kings of Leon’s first number one album in the US, which topped their previous two albums “Mechanical Bull” and “Come Around Sundown”. Its first lead single, “Waste A Moment” topped at number one on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, becoming their first single to do so since 2010.
