Owl City’s ‘Mobile Orchestra’ lands, Adam Young to visit ‘Today Show’

Owl City’s fifth full-length album, Mobile Orchestra [Republic Records/Capitol CMG], is now available. You can get it HERE!Celebrating the release, the multi-platinum, chart-dominating pop maven Owl City — also known as Adam Young—returns to NBC’s The Today Show on Tuesday July 14. He will be joined by collaborators Hanson for the new track “Unbelievable,” giving audiences everywhere the first official performance of the song. Watch the animated companion video HERE.

With Mobile Orchestra, Young dives deeper into his faith than ever before. “I definitely wanted to write in a way that pointed more directly to my faith and how important it is to me,” Young said in a recent interview with Guideposts.org. “I wanted to write a couple of songs that were really vulnerable and honest. I just imagined if I was feeling really lonely or down in the dumps, what’s the kind of song that I could really use?” Some examples on the album include “You’re Not Alone (feat. Britt Nicole),” which hit No. 1 on the Christian Hot AC/CHR chart and “My Everything,” which has a radio add date of July 31. Check out the “My Everything” music video, which recently debuted on Relevant.com.

If you haven’t seen Owl City yet, you’ll get a chance to this fall. Owl City will be hitting the road on a U.S. headline tour with support from pop songstress Rozzi Crane. The trek begins October 5 at The Cannery in Nashville, TN, hits major cities everywhere and wraps on October 26 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Fans will also have the opportunity to opt into special VIP upgrades. The full routing is included below, and tickets are available here.

Musically conceived everywhere from airports and hotels to tour buses, the album Mobile Orchestra, follows up 2012’s Midsummer Station, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 and boasted the double-platinum duet with Carly Rae Jepsen, “Good Time.” The new record also features standout collaborations with country star Jake Owen, “Back Home,” pop luminaries Hanson, “Unbelievable,” and more. Meanwhile, tracks like “My Everything” and “Bird with a Broken Wing” illuminate his progression as a songwriter with a balance between vibrancy and vulnerability.
