Ohana Festival opening night headliners Kings of Leon talk about new music

Five years passed between Kings Of Leon’s previous album, “Walls,” and the band’s recently released album, “When You See Yourself.” That may seem like a long gap between albums. But in reality, Kings Of Leon had the album finished in 2019 only to see the pandemic put album release and touring on hold.

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons
