Neon Trees drew on a wide variety of influences when writing and recording "Mad Love," a highlight from their forthcoming album Picture Show, their second. "This song went from being a fast punk song a la the Descendants or old Weezer to being demoed as something from Tunnel of Love-era Bruce Springsteen," says frontman Tyler Glenn. "I love this song. I was inspired by the Human League and Yaz as much as I was inspired by Roy Orbison when I wrote it. I love its evolution. [Drummer] Elaine [Bradley] has always had such a beautiful voice, but it never seemed to fit into a Neon Trees song before because of its purity. I think that finally this song gave her vocal a platform to work!" Picture Show will be in stores on April 17th, but you can pre-order it today from iTunes.
