Actor and musician Tyler Posey chatted about starring in ‘Teen Wolf: The Movie’ and opened up about his new single ‘Lemon’.

“I’m really excited for the film that comes out tomorrow,” Posey said. “It got great reviews and I’m very proud of it. I think it’s my best work I’ve done as an actor. The fact that I can come back and replay that role as a older adult is just perfect. I’m very happy about it, I’m over the moon.”

Teen Wolf: The Movie synopsis: When a terrifying new evil emerges, Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and the rest of his pack return to Beacon Hills. Scott summarizes the banshees, werecoyotes, hellhounds, kitsunes, and other shapeshifters of the night.

With the help of his new allies, trusted friends, and the return of a long-lost love, Scott and his pack may have a chance.

Teen Wolf: The Movie stars Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, JR Bourne, Colton Haynes, Melissa Ponzio, Ian Bohen, Dylan Sprayberry, Seth Gillam, Vince Mattis, Khylin Rhambo and Tyler Hoechlin. It’s available to stream January 26th exclusively on the Paramount+ streaming service.

“Dylan Sprayberry is one of my best friends. I love working with him. I’ve known him since he was 14 and I’ve watched him grow up and I love this guy. He was great to work with,” Posey said.

Posey is no stranger to the spotlight. His illustrious acting and music career spans a decade during which he has starred in dozens of television shows and films including teenage wolf and truth or Dareas well as a member of several bands including PVMNTS and Five North.

In 2020, Posey decided to take a big step in his music career by becoming a solo artist.

Stepping into the spotlight alone for the first time has been liberating in a number of ways, least of all when it comes to his courage in opening up about the hell of 2020.

The early days of the COVID pandemic were particularly pronounced for him, exacerbating ingrained anxiety, depression and childhood trauma that manifested in a self-destructive pattern of drug and alcohol abuse. While Los Angeles was quarantined, life at Posey’s home became a dangerous cycle of isolation and intoxication.


This new chapter in Posey’s career kickstarts a powder keg of personal reflection and advancement, grounded by his springy voice, juxtaposed with a carefree growl and slick pop-punk sheen.

Speaking of his music and songwriting inspirations, he said, “Sometimes it’s experience based, or sometimes I have a random thought in my head. My life is disconnected to a lot of people as I’ve been acting and traveling the world since I was 6 and I don’t want that to stop me. I’m trying to find the relationship ability in my life while also writing about the uniqueness in my life.”

He listed Fat Mike of punk rock band NOFX as his dream collaboration choice in music. “I love his songwriting, lyrics, melodies and the way he plays his bass is really unique, fun and awesome,” he said.

“I also love Blink-182, they’re my favorite band. I’d love to write a song with Tom DeLonge who’s notorious for never collaborating with anyone and I think that’s so badass and I love that,” he added.

In the acting world, he listed Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and Jesse Plemons as his dream actors. “I want to work with all the heavyweights that I feel like I’m going to be challenged on,” he said. “I would feel intimidated walking on set with them.”

Speaking of his career-defining moments, he said: “Working with some great actors at a young age was formative. These include Jennifer Lopez, Robert De Niro, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I worked with all of them before I was 11 years old. They all taught me that you can be at any level – the highest of the highest – and still be respectful of everyone.”

His upbeat song “Lemon” is included in the credits of his new film, Teen Wolf: The Movie, and will be released the following day (Friday, January 27).

“It was the first song I ever wrote to be in a movie. As soon as ‘Teen Wolf: The Movie’ was announced, I really wanted to put a song in it,” he said.

“Music has grown in my life in the last five years since ‘Teen Wolf’ ended and I wanted to merge the two careers and I wanted to have more music in my life and I wanted to give ‘Teen Wolf’ that’ to it . In that sense I wrote ‘Lemon’ and I sent them four other songs that I had written over the years and they picked ‘Lemon’ and that was amazing because I literally wrote that for this film ‘ he elaborated.

“It has an interesting feel to it, it’s very upscale and more rock ‘n’ roll. I wrote it with my friend Phem in my bedroom and it carries a lot of weight. Phem is an incredible writer and I love being able to work with her. It’s a really cool single and I made this crazy music video for it,” he added.

“For Lemon, I wanted to capture the film and keep the excitement and momentum going,” he said. “For me, an end credits song should keep that energy going.”

He revealed the title of the current chapter in his life: “Happiness and Extremely Present and Focused”. “I’m trying to take an egoless attitude,” he said. “I try to catch my ego before it starts creeping in. I try to hold it down, swallow my pride and what I’m going through, and I try to be more understanding and put myself in other people’s shoes. This created a zen and peaceful life. I’m Tyler Posey 2.0, this is that era of my life. I’m happier than ever.”

The digital age

Speaking of life as an artist in the digital age, he said: “It’s interesting because I started making music as a kid, 12 years old. I love doing the groundwork to get my music out there with my own hands. Now, with the digital age, there’s an added pressure that I’ve seen in the music industry to do things that don’t really fit your passion.”

“Music should always be fun for me, I don’t have to rely on the digital age for success in a music career for me because it’s not the career that keeps my bread on the table. I’m just having fun with it, so my album is a total mess sonically. It’s an interesting era, editing music videos is a lot easier and creating band logos is a lot easier, so there are good sides to the digital age,” he explained.

“I can record a song, have it mixed and mastered one day, and release it with a music video the next day. Everything is at your fingertips. I keep it fun, light and easygoing, and I’m more passionate because I have everything at hand,” he added.

Tips for aspiring musicians and actors

Speaking of young and aspiring artists, he said: “Keep a good head on your shoulders and treat every single person (no matter who they are) with the same respect because word gets around quickly in this city. People want to work with happy people who are good to them. A good reputation precedes everything.”


Of his definition of success, Posey said, “Release the ego and know that there is something much bigger than yourself. Don’t get superficially proud either. What lasts forever is acknowledging that there is something bigger than yourself, so that is my success that I strive for every day.”

For his fans and followers, he remarked: “Anyone who is a fan of my music is excited for this new path. Lemon is an evolved version of what I’ve released in the past, and so is Teen Wolf: The Movie. My acting is better than ever.”

“I’m really looking forward to the fans continuing the story with us and hopefully they enjoy it enough for us to release more. I look forward to people seeing the hard work I put into everything I do,” he concluded.
