It’s been months since Neon Trees gave fans a brand new song, but things are about to change.
On Wednesday (May 20), the Utah-founded band released a new track titled “New Best Friend.” Much like the lyric video for their not-a-comeback, comeback song “Used to Like,” the three-and-a-half-minute clip features a red, purple, and blue color scheme as the lyrics play across the screen in white.

“New Best Friend” will join previously released single “Used to Like” on the quartet’s recently announced fourth studio album, I Can Feel You Forgetting Me.
The band made the formal announcement on social media by posting a simple message that reads, “Our new album. I Can Feel You Forgetting Me. June 26th” on Twitter.
Accompanying the message was a short clip that features frontman Tyler Glenn explaining what “ghosting culture” is as static plays on the screen. As his voice begins to warble, people dressed as sheet ghosts (like in the “Used to Like” music video) appear in different locations.
It looks like ghosting will play a significant role in the band’s upcoming era.
I Can Feel You Forgetting Me is the long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s Pop Psychology. The record is due out June 26.
I Can Feel You Forgetting Me is Neon Trees’ first studio album since going on, and returning from, their hiatus following the release of Pop Psychology.
While no full studio albums were released during that time, they did get back together to release two non-album singles; “Songs I Can’t Listen To” in 2015 and “Feel Good” in 2017.
