Love in the 21st Century

Album: Pop Psychology (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Neon Trees' Pop Psychology album has a loose theme about the challenges of finding love in the digital age. The album's anthemic opener finds vocalist Tyler Glenn yearning for a pre-social media connection. "You can hear my frustration with turning 30 and not being totally excited that I'm still single," he said, "but also realizing that I had to first own who I am and what I want before I can truly find someone."
