Kings of Leon's Caleb Followill seems to have made peace with the band's Sex On Fire single.

The frontman has made a U-Turn on their 2008 hit, and has said he loves it "at this point".

In an interview with Q magazine, he revealed: "I love 'Sex On Fire' at this point. It doesn't matter where we play in the world, as soon as that starts, the place is gonna go nuts."

He added: "At first, I was like, 'That was supposed to be like a funny moment on the album.' I've always had funny moments on albums where I goof-off a little bit and that was one of those moments."

However, talking about people's reaction to the track, the Use Somebody singer gushed: "To see how successful it became was like, 'Whoa, this is not what I expected.' But I look back now with nothing but pride."

Followill previously told NME he thought sex on fire was so "terrible" he almost never recorded it. 

Meanwhile, the Nashville four-piece have recently unveiled their Waste A Moment single- the lead track to come from their forthcoming seventh album WALLS.

WALLS - which stands for We Are Like Love Songs, is set for release on 14 October 2016.
