Neon Trees released their new single “Songs I Can’t Listen To” today on neontrees.com. The new song was written by front man Tyler Glenn, who came out publicly last year and who sang at the Utah State Capitol Building during the legislative session.
“This song idea came to me at a pivotal time in my life,” said Glenn. “My best friend didn’t want me in her life anymore, and a few weeks later I started seeing someone that excited me, and music was a central part to both relationships. Now neither people are in my life, but all those songs are…And I’m instantly transported to intimate moments with those people whenever those songs come on.”
The band will kick off their new tour, “An Intimate Night Out With Neon Trees,” June 6th in Seattle, and will be in Utah June 13 at 5 Star Legacy Foundation’s Summer Bash featuring Neon Trees with guests Big Data, Fictionist, Alex Winston, The Strike, Blue Aces, Yes No Yes, and Two Nations at the Brent Brown Ballpark on the Utah Valley University campus. Tickets available here.
