Owl City plus Matthew Koma **Venue Change – This Show Will now Take Place at Heaven**
**Please Note That This Show Will Now Take Place At Heaven - http://www.heaven-live.co.uk **
When it came time to record Adam Young’s third album as Owl City, the Minnesota native set himself the following challenge: “Over the past several years I’d become fascinated with trying to capture magic in a jar through simple, concise pop songs,” he says. “I saw it as a great challenge to try to come up with catchy, unique, and memorable songs because it was a new method of songwriting I’d never approached before. I believe artists should never look back or repeat themselves and this was a new frontier for me.”
To create the instantly memorable, feel-good moments he envisioned (like first single ‘Shooting Star’), Young sought out co-writers and outside producers for the first time, enlisting his friend Matt Thiessen (Relient K), Stargate (Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa), and the team of Josh Crosby, Nate Campany, and Emily Wright (the latter known for her work with Dr. Luke).
Owl City plays his new material at the hmv Forum on 25th October. Matthew Koma will be supporting.
