There was a time when we all really didn’t know if we would ever get another Neon Trees album. After the release of their excellent third studio album in 2014, Pop Psychology, the band took a lengthy hiatus. Front-man Tyler Glenn released a solo album in 2016 that detailed his internal struggle with religion and his sexuality called Excommunication. There were a few teasers of new music from the band in the form of one-off singles such as “Feel Good” and “Songs I Can’t Listen To,” but no further announcements of them working towards anything concrete. The song “Used To Like” made its appearance out of nowhere in the middle of November, and that sparked a newfound interest in the band after so much time away. As shitty as a year as 2020 has been, we give our thanks to Neon Trees for making a brilliant comeback album called I Can Feel You Forgetting Me. This album is a collection of songs detailing the heartbreak in Tyler Glenn’s personal life and possibly a dual meaning of making their longtime fans remember the band they fell in love with in the first place. The vibes set forth on this LP teeter on the verge of a nighttime summer album, and the songs lend themselves well to the lofty expectations placed upon themselves in the legacy of their discography.Read More “Neon Trees – I Can Feel You Forgetting Me”
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.”
