Kings of Leon‘s When You See Yourself album NFT has found a new home at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The cryptocurrency record is now on display in the Cleveland museum’s Right Here, Right Now exhibit.

“Rock & roll is filled with innovation, from electric guitars to CDs to digital streams,” says Rock Hall CEO and President Greg Harris. “We are honored to recognize another industry first by adding Kings of Leon When You See Yourself the first music related NFT to our Hall of Fame collection.”

Harris adds, “We are excited to exhibit it to the public so they can experience the enhanced content and learn more about NFTs and where they fit in the rock and roll timeline of innovation.”

When You See Yourself, the eighth Kings of Leon album, was released in March. It’s one of the first-ever new albums to be released as an NFT, or non-fungible token.

KoL visited the Rock Hall exhibit themselves while they were in Cleveland Thursday to perform at the NFL Draft. The multi-day event will also feature sets from Machine Gun Kelly and Black Pumas.
