Background[edit]

"It's Too Late" is the lead single from Evermore's debut album, Dreams (September 2004), which peaked at No. 16 on the ARIA Singles Chart.[1] The group consists of three New Zealand-raised brothers, Jon (lead vocals, lead guitar), Peter (backing vocals, piano, keyboards, bass guitar), and Dann Hume (backing vocals, drums) – they co-wrote "It's Too Late".[2] Evermore worked with producers Barrett Jones (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Whiskeytown)[3] and (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer).[4][5]

Two more singles were released from the album: "For One Day" (February 2005), and "Come to Nothing" (May) – which charted in the top 100.[1] All three singles were featured on the New Zealand and Australian promos for the United States TV program, The O.C., with "It's Too Late" ultimately appearing on the show.[3] On 7 August 2006 a remixed version of "It's Too Late" by Dirty South (aka Dragan Roganović), titled "It's Too Late (Ride on)", was released, and appeared on numerous compilation albums.[6] The remixed single reached the top 100 in Belgium, France and The Netherlands.[7][8][9]
