Muchacho

Songfacts®:

  • Caleb Followill recalls here on this rumba-flavored song his "favorite friend of all" - a band associate who died of cancer. The entire WALLS album, in fact, is a tribute to his influence on the band.

    "He was a very challenging guy," Jared Followill told NME. "He would come on the road with us and be involved in setlists and he wanted us to try new things and keep us on our toes. His passing was a big part of why we challenged ourselves."
