"It's Too Late" is the lead single by rock band, Evermore, taken from their debut album Dreams (September 2004). The track was written by the group's three New Zealand-raised brothers: Dann (backing vocals, drums), Jon (lead vocals, lead guitar), and Peter Hume (backing vocals, piano, keyboards, bass guitar). It was produced by Barrett Jones and John Alagía and released on 2 August 2004, which reached No. 16 on the ARIA Singles Chart in their adopted country of Australia. The song features on The OC Mix 2 soundtrack as a bonus Australian release only track. It also features on the Australian and New Zealand editions of SingStar Pop. In Australia, the song was listed at No. 14 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004.
Two more singles were released from the album: "For One Day" (February 2005), and "Come to Nothing" (May) – which charted in the top 100. 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. 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. The remixed single reached the top 100 in Belgium, France and The Netherlands.
