Neon Trees Frontman Tyler Glenn Comes Out

Tyler Glenn is the lead singer for American alternative rock band Neon Trees. They’re best known for their Top 10 hit, “Everybody Talks” which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2011. The 30-year-old singer just publicly came out in an interview featured in the latest issue of Rolling Stone on stands this Friday, March 28. The Mormon-raised singer reveals he’s known he was gay since a young child but kept his sexuality a secret until now.

“I had my crushes on guys throughout high school, but it was never an overwhelming thing until my twenties,” he admits. “Then I’d be dating girls and in love with my straight friend and it was the worst feeling in the world.”

Glenn began telling close friends and family members in October 2013 as he was finishing writing songs for Neon Tree’s forthcoming third studio album, Pop Psychology. Reportedly, many of the tracks address his years in the closet. What inspired him to publicly come out is the variety of men and women recently going public, especially professional athletes.

I really love all of the sports figures that are coming out recently,” he says. “I appreciated Michael Sam was like, ‘I want to be able to go to the movies and hold hands with my boyfriend.’ Even hearing him say ‘boyfriend,’ I was just like, that’s cool.”

Congrats to Tyler Glenn for finding the courage to come out. Welcome to the family, gurl ;) Check out Neon Trees’ breakout hit below.

Neon Trees Covers Justin Bieber’s “Baby”

In: Donovan, Music

New wave rock band Neon Trees, has probably chosen the most unlikeliest song to cover. Mohawked Neon Trees frontman Tyler Glenn, explains they chose Justin Bieber’s hit “Baby” because everyone is enjoying it right now. I guess, everyone does have “Bieber Fever”. In addition Bieber is on the same label, so they thought it’d be nice shout out.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE their doo-wop infused acoustic version of the Biebz’s hit. But what put me over the moon, was when they mashed it up with Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me“. Truly brilliant. I love a good mashup and this one certainly fits the bill.

The Provo, Utah quartet has appeared on the “Jimmy Kimmel Show” and the “Tonight Show“, but their biggest break came when they were asked to open for The Killer’s North American tour dates. They signed a record deal with Mercury Records in 2009 shortly after touring with the band. Their debut album “Habits” is in stores now and their lead single “Animal” has been used in several commercials and reached #11 on Billboard’s Alternative Rock Chart.
