With humble small town beginnings in Owatonna, MN, Owl City (aka Adam Young) remains an avant-garde hitmaker in his own right. With total album sales over 3 million and single sales surpassing 20 million globally, his smash “Fireflies” from 2009’s Ocean Eyes received a five-times RIAA platinum certification in addition to going No. 1 in 26 countries. His popular hit “Good Time feat. Carly Rae Jepsen” went Top 4 in the U.S. and racked up sales of close to 3 million.
Following the release of 2015’s Mobile Orchestra, which saw him team up with Aloe Blacc, Hanson and Jake Owen, to name a few, Adam Young took a year to work on his eponymously named side project and begin to lay the groundwork for Cinematic – Owl City’s 2018 offering and first independent album. Rolling out in a trio of EPs – dubbed “Reels” – the 18-track album Cinematic is slated for release on June 1, 2018.
