Kings of Leon had the treat of playing Central Hall Westminster when they visited The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday (June 7) -- because the show was taping a special edition in London. So for the unique circumstance, the Followills & company decided to crack out their smashing "Reverend,"  the second single off their Walls album.

The song kicks off with a delightfully ominous guitar riff and a clattering of cymbals before Caleb Followill grinds his voice into the song's lyrics. "Just like a reverend, like a reverend on the radio / My heart will never say so / My heart will never let you go," he sings, using evangelical AM radio preachers as a metaphor for the life of Blaze Foley, who died during a gun fight at the age of 39.
