Pop Psychology was recorded throughout 2013 in Cabo San Lucas, Los Angeles, and Provo and was produced and mixed by Tim Pagnotta, who also produced the band’s smash hits “Animal” and “Everybody Talks”. The new album continues Neon Trees’ exploration of new wave, smart pop, and dance music, resulting in their most refined album to date. Pop Psychology boasts infectious alternative synth pop ready for the radio, shower, car and dance floor.
Tyler Glenn says of Pop Psychology, “The album is so special to me personally because it basically started from a place where I was broken and uninterested in anything to do with music. I had reached a breaking point. For me this record is a celebration, a cry for help, an admission of self doubt, and a revelation of self acceptance. At the very least, it’s a pop record, and to me the purest example of the sound of Neon Trees.”
Neon Trees will kick off 2014 by storming the airwaves with several confirmed television appearances. On Thursday, January 16th, the band will return to Late Night with Jimmy Fallonfollowed by a performance the next morning on TODAY. On January 22nd, they’ll return to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
