Owl City: Hometown Tour - Back To School
Owl City’s Adam Young might have hit the proverbial “big time” in 2009 when his single “Fireflies” started climbing the charts, but the young musician is still undoubtedly a hometown boy.
“I got a house of my own, but still in my little hometown called Owatonna (in Minnesota),” Young says. “Until two years ago I was living in my parents’ basement. My new house is a mile from their house. It’s the right place for me, for sure. Somebody only really has one hometown and that’s mine.”
The above video features Young tooling around his old school. “It was a fun revisit for me, because I’m from a really small town and a really small school,” he says. “I’m really shy so I was never really much of a popular person back then.”
In high school, Young mowed lawns for two summers to raise the cash to buy an acoustic guitar, which set off his obsession with music. “I wanted to use this thing as a tool that would take me places,” he says. “We never really did the whole family vacation thing that a lot of people do, so my escape was always through music, so this acoustic guitar was the first cruise ship for me — my first time on an airplane. My first escape.”
Although music has afforded Young a lot more opportunities to see the world — he used to work loading Coca-Cola trucks — the musician still seems to retain the innocence and whimsy of Ocean Eyes
, the album that yielded “Fireflies,” in his latest disc. His newest album, All Things Bright and Beautiful
, is due out June 14.
The video above features the song “Deer in the Headlights
,” which is available today on iTunes. “I actually just got out of a relationship right before I wrote it,” Young says.
“Some of my older stuff is based around romance, but it’s kind of dreamy, beautiful, perfect and kind of surreal — ethereal,” he adds. “And this one is a little bit more raw…. Being an introverted guy, I’ve only ever had two girlfriends, so I’ve never had that much to draw from in that respect, so I’ve only ever written from imagination. So it was a kind of a fun song to pull really specifically from an actual life scenario.”
