Years ago, if you would have asked Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn what he wanted to be when he grew up, his answer would not have been a musician.

The singer confesses to PopCrush he told teachers and other adults that he wanted to be a journalist -- and he even wrote for the school paper! "Now that I get to do this, I'm not going to leave until someone drags me out," he says with a smile. "It's too much fun."

Tyler sat down to chat with PopCrush about that as well as the inspiration behind the band's upcoming album, 'Pop Psychology' (out on April 22), and to open up about a dark period in his life. Watch our exclusive interview with him in the video above.
