A combination of concert meet 'n' greets and personal movie watching provided the dual impetus for Neon Dreams' new single "Turn Back Now," premiering exclusively below.
The Halifax pop duo's Frank Kadillac tells Billboard that the track -- currently a one-off single follow-up to Neon Dreams' debut album Sweet Dreams till Sunbeams -- was inspired by encounters with fans while he and musical partner Adrian Morris were touring. "They would tell me stories about their lives and it was always something bad or lessons they were going through at the moment," Kadillac recalls. "I really wished I had a lot of time to talk to them and tell 'em my life story and tell them it's gonna be OK. Some people don't have anyone to say that to them." Kadillac himself was the child of a teenage mother who had to work all the time, and he was frequently bullied during his youth.
