SINGLE PREMIERE: Kings Of Leon – “Supersoaker” (+ Lyrics)

This song is on fire.

This song is on fire.

Tenneesee’s Kings Of Leon have been laying low since the end of their last era, Come Around Sundown, which featured the singles “Radioactive” and “Pyro”. Both charted on Alternative radio, with the former single going to #1 on that format. The album itself topped out in the runner-up spot and eventually went Gold. This was unfortunately followed by a series of cancelled dates after an in-concert incident involving lead singer Caleb Followill, which then led to a short hiatus for the band. Now, the quartet is back and ready to release their sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull, on September 24. This first single is now at radio, which sounds like it was heavily influenced by Bruce Springsteen, especially in the chorus, but remains pretty faithful to their own catalogue. It’ll be flying up the charts in no time. Enjoy!

Listen to the premiere of “Supersoaker”.

“SUPERSOAKER” (3:50)

[Verse 1]
My motivation is gone too soon
Good vibrations all over you
Act like you mean it, you mean it
You gotta story you never tell
Down in the Delta, they’re ringing bells
I’ve never seen it, seen it
Back of my mind, I’m on my way
I see through smiles on every face
I don’t believe it, believe it

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’m the super soaker, red white and blew ’em all away
With the kisses unclean as the words that you say

[Chorus]
I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don’t walk away, walk away

[Verse 2]
The flags are flying across the Plains
I got a secret picking in my brain
I wanna see you, see you
Yes, the sign is on my face
I don’t know my home
I don’t know my place
I just wanna be there, be there

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’m the super soaker, red white and blew ’em all away
With the kisses unclean as the words that you say

[Chorus]
I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don’t walk away, walk away
I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don’t walk away, whoa oh oh

I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
I just lay it on the line, on the line

[Chorus]
I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don’t walk away, walk away
I don’t mind sentimental girls at times
Miss don’t walk away, oh oh oh oh
