New Owl City Track


Just a violent reminder to make sure you’re following me on Vine (@owlcity), Instagram (@owlcityofficial), & Twitter (@owlcity), as I gear up to launch a new track in the week or so. 

That is all.

it’s so annoying when I go to the movie theater and the people behind me complain the whole time because they can’t see around my sombrero

New Music


I’ve been reviewing the body of work I’ve created over the past few months and I’m so excited to share it with you in due time. Some songs are finished, others are pulling into focus.

The cycle is strange; you chase an inspiration and immerse yourself in a vision so wholeheartedly that it becomes almost philosophical to you, but eventually you must deconstruct it and unlearn everything you thought you knew in order to begin anew. For me, music is funny that way. The more I study it, the less I understand it.

The next chapter of OC is filled with wild goose chases and extraordinary twists and turns — through old familiar fancies and across new frontiers. I’ve been lucky to capture some magical ideas, a few of which are so eccentric, they are borderline strange — dark and beautiful.

I’ve decided 2014 is a solo year for me in studio. Not that I tire of collaborating, quite the contrary — but my universe is rotating at such a pleasant rate that I find myself inspired to investigate and explore the endless unchartered expanse of imagination that remains unmapped in my own head, absent of outside contribution. Thus I stray and wander, all alone, during the early hours of the morning, after the city retires and the world is fast asleep.

I think a lot but I don’t say much, and so I write.

A Poem


There once was a thing called Simon

He was really bad slime and

He had no rocks to eat with socks

So he had to eat at Denny’s

Kevin Garnet can touch the net

I just saw him rollerblading

By Phil’s house

Spoiler: Owl City is 95% sad lyrics over uplifting chords.

A story


Once upon a time there was a super ugly witch with a wart on her nose and she rode around on broomsticks and rake handles and golf clubs and fishing poles and old rolls of carpet. Nobody liked her because she was mean and she never brushed her teeth.

One day a grizzly bear was trying to catch a fish in a river for his dinner when the witch flew overhead and burned all his fur off with a lightning bolt. “WHYYY???” shouted the bear. The witch just laughed and turned up her headphones.

The next day a nerd was alone in his room playing WOW on his laptop. The witch flew by his window and disconnected his internet and flew away shrieking as the nerd shouted “WHYYY???”

The next day an old man was in the woods duck hunting when the witch flew by shouting and cackling to herself. The old man was so old he almost died. 

The next day the witch was flying over a town when her broomstick ran out of gas and she crashed through an open window and into the bedroom of an incredibly loud and annoying girl. The witch panicked because the girl immediately started yelling and talking and squealing and screaming and crying and shaking and asking questions at the top of her lungs and no matter what the witch did, she could not get the girl to shut up. The girl was in fact so annoying that the witch swore she would never be mean to anyone again for as long as she lived. The witch is still alive today. Some say she lives alone in the woods and headbangs to techno music. 

The end.
