When You See Yourself is the eighth studio album by American rock band Kings of Leon. It was released on March 5, 2021, by RCA Records. The album was again produced by Markus Dravs. It was preceded by the singles “The Bandit” and “100,000 People”, both released on January 7, 2021. It is the band’s first album in nearly four and a half years, following 2016’s Walls, marking their longest gap between studio album releases.
The album was released on March 5, 2021.
The band became the first to sell a newly-released album in the form of a non-fungible token, a type of cryptocurrency that contains unique assets such as music and art. The release came in the form of three different types of tokens for three separate packages in a series called “NFT Yourself”. They contained a special album package, a live show package, and an audiovisual package. The tokens were developed and hosted by YellowHeart, a ticketing platform employing blockchain technology.
