Last.fm today exclusively began streaming the not yet released Kings of Leon album, Only By The Night’, for free one week before it ships – and band frontman Caleb Followill pleaded with fans to think again before stealing music.
Caleb said: “There are a lot of people online that say, ‘these guys have a wonderful life, screw them if they don’t want me listening’ – you don’t know what it’s like! Literally, sometimes I jump out of bed at three in the morning and go and write something down because I just had a dream and I thought of something.
“You don’t know what goes into writing a song, let alone an album. It’s not a day at the office – you’re putting your heart and soul into something and for people to not respect that, that’s crazy. But when you have people that do it the right way – that’s pushing your artform.”
