Multi-platinum, chart-topping alternative pop trailblazer OWL CITY will release his forthcoming fifth full-length album, Mobile Orchestra [Republic Records], on Friday, July 10. This is the first new standard global music industry release date, aligning album releases worldwide to Fridays. Pre-order NOW and unlock download of the first single“Verge” (featuring Aloe Blacc). Shortly after the album pre-order went live today, the album shot straight to #1 on the iTunes Pop Album Chart.
The lyric video for “Verge” (featuring Aloe Blacc) premieres today on VEVO. “Verge” combines OWL CITY’s sweeping vocals and boisterous, bouncy production with Aloe Blacc’s strikingly smooth signature croon. Fusing pop, electronic, alternative, and R&B, it’s the perfect start for the latest musical adventure from multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Adam Young—aka OWL CITY.
Owatonna, Minnesota’s own OWL CITY remains an avant garde hitmaker in his own right. With total album sales over 2.5 million and single sales surpassing 18 million globally, his smash “Fireflies” from 2009’s Ocean Eyes received a five-times RIAA platinum certification in addition to going #1 in 26 countries. “Good Time” featuring Carly Rae Jepsen went Top 4 in the U.S. and racked up sales of close to three million. He composed the theme song for filmmaker Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and an original tune for Disney’s Academy Award winner Wreck-It Ralph, while Owl City’s music has seen placements everywhere from The Croods and Veggietales to Smurfs 2.
