It is June 3rd 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
This week the 'Song of the Week' is by a pretty popular young man from Owatonna, Minnesota.
To most, Owl City is a household name, or close to it. And, with well over seven million 'likes' on Facebook it is evident Adam Young knows what he is doing.
At [only] twenty five, Adam is truly one heck of a talented fellow. He can literally play any instrument, or so it seems, and he has nailed the art of songwriting. So, we are beyond excited to say that Owl City's song Shooting Star, off his most recent EP, is the 'Song of the Week' this week.
Like most, I first discovered Adam Young's project back in 2009 when his huge hit Fireflies was released. Ever since then, I just cannot get enough of his insanely catchy tunes and unique lyrics.
Adam has already released three hugely successful studio albums since 2008 and he is already preparing for his fourth release. His newest album, titled The Midsummer Station, is set to be released on August 21st 2012. And, let me just say, the next seventy three days cannot pass quick enough.
Adam Young is honestly one of those guys you just cannot imagine the music scene without. Between his many projects outside of Owl City, including his earlier project Sky Sailing, to his countless collaborations, he truly brings a fresh sound into the music scene.
As if the new album, coming soon, is not exciting enough, Owl City just released a new EP on May 15th 2012. His newest addition, titled Shooting Star, is complete with four inspirational, catchy and simply amazing tunes. And, that is why the title track, Shooting Star, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Whether you know Adam Young for his previous projects, including Sky Sailing which is also gaining attention, or for Owl City, you will want to stay tuned. Like I said, Adam is definitely one heck of a talented guy and is certainly one to watch out for as his career continues to grow.
