Feel Good

Album: Yet to be titled (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Neon Trees' first single in two years finds them returning to the band's pop rock sound. The track was written by Neon Trees frontman Tyler Glenn and produced by Captain Cuts (Walk The Moon, Grouplove, Chainsmokers) at their Los Angeles studio.
  • Glenn explained the song's meaning: "Thematically it's essentially me saying 'enough' of feeling bad all the time. 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."
