With humble small town beginnings in Owatonna, MN, Owl City (aka Adam Young) remains an avant garde hitmaker in his own right. His breakout track “Fireflies” from 2009’s Ocean Eyes remains one of the most memorable hits of the decade — receiving a five-times RIAA platinum certification, hitting No. 1 in 26 countries and remaining culturally relevant well into 2017. Not to mention, his popular collaboration “Good Time feat. Carly Rae Jepsen” went Top 4 in the U.S. and racked up 3 million in sales and over 100 million streams.
From recent collaborations with everyone from Aloe Blacc to Hanson to Jake Owen, to song placements everywhere from The Croods and Veggietales to Smurfs 2, Owl City is more poised than ever to release his fifth studio album — Cinematic — in 2018.
