[Watch] Kings of Leon Share Video for "Supersoaker," Stream New Single "Wait For Me"

Kings of Leon have offered up a 2 for 1 deal today.

The first thing on offer is the video for "Supersoaker," the recent lead single from the band's upcoming sixth album Mechanical Bull. Gleaming with 1970's filters and imagery, the clip centers around the band performing the song while carefree teenagers indulge in their youth.

Number two: KoL have shared another song from Mechanical Bull, this time with the somber, mid-tempo "Wait For Me." It's at the opposite end of the spectrum from "Supersoaker," as guitars echo and Caleb Followill cries out with raspy desire. Listen below.
