In 2012, Diamond married his manager, Katie McNeil, in front of family and close friends in Los Angeles. Seven months earlier, on September 7, 2011, in a message on Twitter, the 70-year-old Diamond had announced his engagement to the 41-year-old McNeil. Diamond said that his 2014 album Melody Road was fueled by their relationship, explaining: "There's no better inspiration or motivation for work than being in love. It's what you dream of as a creative person. I was able to complete this album – start it, write it and complete it – under the spell of love, and I think it shows somehow." In addition to serving as Diamond's manager, McNeil produced the documentary Neil Diamond: Hot August Nights NYC.
In 1996, Diamond began a lengthy, live-in relationship with Australian Rae Farley after the two met in Brisbane, Australia. The songs on Home Before Dark were written and composed during her struggle with chronic back pain.
