Island recording group Neon Trees has announced today’s release of their eagerly anticipated new single. “Feel Good” is available now on all DSPs and streaming services. Written by Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn and produced by Captain Cuts (Walk The Moon, Grouplove, Chainsmokers) at their Los Angeles studio, “Feel Good” marks Neon Trees’ first new music in more than two years.
The Provo, UT-based band is currently hard at work in the studio, preparing the eagerly awaited follow-up to their 3rd album, 2014’s acclaimed POP PSYCHOLOGY.
“It seems strange to say this but: We’re back,” wrote Neon Trees in a recent Facebook post. “It’s been three 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…Thank you for being with us all these years, and we can’t wait to show you all what we’ve been up to and what we have in store.”
“Feel Good” marks Neon Trees return to its infectious pop rock sound.
“Thematically it’s essentially me saying ‘enough’ of feeling bad all the time,” Says Glenn, singer.
“Late last year I was waking up each day, but I couldn’t wait to get back to bed. It took so much effort to just feel ok. I turned to music like I always do, and wrote “Feel Good” at a time when I was feeling pretty low. I think beyond who’s right and who’s wrong about everything going on in the world, there’s a human desire in all of us to feel ok, to ‘FEEL GOOD’. That’s one truth everyone can agree on.”
Neon Trees will celebrate “Feel Good” with an exclusive home state live performance at the upcoming LOVELOUD Fest, set for Saturday, August 26th at Orem, UT’s Brent Brown Ballpark at Utah Valley University. The event – co-headlined by Imagine Dragons and also featuring Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk the Moon, and Joshua James – was created by Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds with help from Tyler Glenn, to ignite the vital conversation of what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept, and support LGBTQ+ youth. Proceeds will go to the LOVELOUD Foundation, which supports The Trevor Project, Encircle, GLAAD, and STAND4KIND. Tickets for LOVELOUD Fest are now on sale via Smith’s Tix; for more information, visit loveloudfest.com
POP PSYCHOLOGY made a stunning top-10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2014 release – Neon Trees’ highest chart placement to date. The album’s popular success was driven in large part by the multi-format smash single/video, “Sleeping With A Friend,” now certified gold by the RIAA for sales and streams in excess of 41 million.
Known worldwide as a colorful and energetic live outfit, Neon Trees has spent much of their lifetime on the road, including countless headline shows, festival performances, and tours alongside such like-minded artists as The Killers, Maroon 5, Twenty One Pilots, Duran Duran, The Flaming Lips, My Chemical Romance, Taylor Swift and more.
