It seems strange to say this but:
It’s been 3 years since our last album, and after years of being a band together, touring the world and living the dreams of our youth, we took an important break.. one that’s refreshed all of us and refocused what our band is and what we want to do next.
We are pleased to announce that next week you’ll all be getting the first taste of new music from this next era of Neon Trees.
Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of Neon Trees, has released his new song “Trash” on Apple Music, YouTube, and a video on Rolling Stone. The song comes from Tyler’s upcoming solo album, due out this fall on Island Records. The full press release can be found below.
“My entire life and perspective on God, the afterlife, morals and values, my self-worth, my born sexual orientation…all of it had been wired within the framework of this religion that doesn’t have a place for me,” says Tyler Glenn. “They claim it’s the only truth, the Lord’s church, but there have been 40+ suicides within the church as a result of that – men, women and children. I needed to make this statement to artfully show the pain of a faith crisis and the darkness of doubt. But also that there are ways to reclaim what is yours – I’m beginning to reclaim what is mine now with this song, with this video and with this record.”
