Kings of Leon have unveiled a video for their new song, “Going Nowhere.” Directed by Casey McGrath, the black-and-white clip was shot live from Nashville, Tennessee and they released it on Tuesday.
The visual features band frontman Caleb Followill. He is seen sitting on the arm of a couch as he’s filmed with his back to the camera while he is alone performing the reflective ballad on acoustic guitar. The minimalistic backdrop and setting befits the song’s of-the-moment longing themes of yearning to be with someone while looking forward to better days. “I’m going nowhere/If you’ve got the time/And it’s a long, hard road/’til I can get to you,” Followill sings. “And I’ll be holding on/Hoping the sun comes shining through.”
