Santa Monica — December 2, 2021 — The platinum-selling group Neon Trees wrap 2021 on a high note with versions of you, a new digital EP celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Everybody Talks,” one of the band’s biggest hits. Set for release via UMe on December 10, the four-song EP features a new recording of the 5x platinum Top-10 hit, plus the new title track, and newly recorded versions of fan favorites “Animal” and “Sleeping With A Friend.”
Pre-Save/Pre-Add: versions of you
versions of you follows the video released last month for their current single, “Holiday Rock.” Co-written and co-produced by lead singer Tyler Glenn and producer Dan Book, the single kicks off the season of cheer. The video, which was filmed at Encircle Salt Lake City, features the band celebrating the holidays with friends and family. Watch it here.
With the EP versions of you, Neon Trees reflect on their incredible career and the 10th anniversary of “Everybody Talks,” the band’s wildly popular single from their sophomore album, Picture Show (2012). When first released, Rolling Stone premiered “Everybody Talks” online and praised the song for reflecting a sense of 60s-pop style fun. The new version is an intimately upbeat reminder that Neon Trees’ knack for a catchy tune is rivaled by their talent for clever insights. The anniversary gift on the versions of you EP is the new title track, a heartfelt search for empathy. Another multiplatinum single, “Animal,” the breakout hit from their debut, Habits (2010), first received acoustic treatment for its 10th anniversary last year and makes an encore on the EP as a new version of that recording. Their third album, Pop Psychology (2014), also premiered online at Rolling Stone with its first single, “Sleeping With a Friend,” which downshifts on the EP to a gentle reminder to tread carefully in this scenario.
