On Thursday night, Neon Trees will be the musical guest on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” The band will perform “Sleeping With A Friend,” its new single from Pop Psychology, out April 22. But the performance will mark the group’s last on the show with Fallon at the helm. The TV host moves to “The Tonight Show” on February 17.
“There’s definitely an energy in the studio right now,” lead singer Tyler Glenn said of Fallon’s digs in 30 Rock. “That’ll be fun to be one of his last [musical guests].”
Neon Trees appeared on Fallon during the band’s first album cycle for Habits. Glenn admits he is a big fan of The Roots, and also likes the music of another guest Thursday night: Drake.
“I love that new single he put out,” Glenn said, presumably referring to “Hold On We’re Going Home.” “I didn’t know he could sing.”
While offering props, the front man stopped short of saying he could see a collaboration between his band and Drake; at least not of the musical variety. When I asked Glenn if he’d try to take anything from Studio 6A as a memento, he joked that the only thing he might grab is a photo with the hip hop star.
Bonus: Glenn talks about touring with Maroon 5. Check back later in the week for more video!
