Kings of Leon are back with a new album that will make their fans want to cut loose on the dance floor, in the car, and just about every time they hit play on one of their new songs. 

The American rock band, which consists of the Followill brothers - Nathan, Caleb, and Jared - as well as cousin Matthew, released 'Can We Please Have Fun' on Friday, May 10. 

They dropped the music video for 'Nowhere to Run' at the same time. 

"Shot under their own creative direction you can see Kings of Leon dancing and running wild. The band took control of all creative elements on this record – from start to finish - managing every single detail from the music to artwork and (as evident in the video) to unconventional visuals for each song. All were shot entirely themselves over two days in Nashville," a statement reads.

'Can We Have Fun Please', which is produced by Kid Harpoon, is the band's ninth studio album. The album's lead single, 'Mustang', has been well-received by fans. 

"As a 92-year-old, I must say this is the greatest band I've had the pleasure of witnessing rise," one fan wrote on YouTube.

The 12-track album has also received rave reviews from top music publications. Rolling Stone magazine called it "pulsing with Brtipop-ish energy".

"Can We Please Have Fun eases into the good times with some unexpected sonic twists… glistening synths… propulsive bassline… sexy… sleek-and-polished grooves," the publication wrote. 

NME said it "recaptures the raucous energy that the Nashville clan bottled in the early ‘00s".

Kings of Leon couldn't be prouder of their new project. Caleb says is the "most enjoyable record" he has ever participated in.  

"It sounds corny, but I really love this record and loved making it, and I’m sad that that portion of it is over with. So to be able to relive it in interviews, it’s actually exciting," he told Esquire magazine. 

Caleb admits feeling sad when they were done recording the album. 

"We were just clicking—and up until the end it was just like, “All right, what do we need?” And if somebody said, 'What about a rock song or a ballad?' I was so inspired that I was like, 'Any challenge, I’m ready for it.' That’s never happened before in our career."

The band will be going on tour next month. The 'Can We Please Have Fun' tour starts in Leeds, UK, on June 20. 

It will end in Bridgeport in the US on October 5. 

"Got my tickets! Front row at Glasgow on the 2nd of July. I cannot wait. It's going to be EPIC," one fan said.
