Owl City's Adam Young just released 'Alligator Sky,' the first single from his new album, 'All Things Bright and Beautiful,' and guess where it debuted? At the No. 1 spot on iTunes' Electronic Track chart.
The song is Adam at his best, creating lush, layered melodies with his electropop vibe. This time, however, the Minnesota native enlisted the help of Los Angeles rapper Shawn Chrystopher to help give the single a new dimension.
The mix of Adam's dreamy voice and Shawn's assertive verses makes for an awesome combination that we can't get enough of. It's no wonder why the song had such an amazing debut on the charts.
Earlier this month, we told you that Owl City would be releasing his brand new album, 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' in May, which Adam says will be different from his last album, 'Ocean Eyes.'
"This new record is really a lot more finished than the last one was, so I'm excited to feel that much more resolved about it," he says in a behind-the-scenes video on his website.
'All Things Bright and Beautiful' will be available on May 17, and Adam will kick off his upcoming headlining tour on June 13. Listen to 'Alligator Sky' below, and score your copy of the song on iTunes now.
