Just when we thought we would have to listen to their greatest hits forever, Owl City emerges from the shadows with an all-new upbeat hit! The "Fireflies" artist, whose collaboration with Carly Rae Jepsen on "Good Time" caused his album The Midsummer Station to go dazzlingly platinum (twice!), is at it again! Coming back and better than ever with his Ultraviolet EP, the singer brings Lunsey Stirling into the mix. The lead track of the album and their gorgeous teamwork piece, "Beautiful Times," is sure to put you in a playful mood! Featuring a cute little star, the music video unfolds as the star proceeds to turn a little kid's room into its latest Picasso masterpiece. This means everything gets turned topsy turvy! Adam Young, the brainchild (or brainman as the case may be) behind Owl City, had a wonderful time shooting the video, and would like to think the optimism of the song was mirrored on their set. We'd certainly like to think so! "It was a blast shooting 'Beautiful Times' because the film crew was such a fun bunch of people to be around," he tells Rolling Stone. "I've been on a few sets where everyone is on edge and it throws the whole thing off. A positive atmosphere really makes all the difference in the world." A while ago, long before "Vanilla Twilight" and around the time of "Fireflies," Young took the time to map out what he sees as "his music's dream edge". "About two years ago I was working at a Coca-Cola warehouse all day. It allowed me to sort of dream up these projects. One wound up being Owl City. I thought through how I wanted it to sound, how I wanted the records to look, everything. Sometimes working in a monotonous environment can really free up your imagination." Wow! Can you guys imagine Owl City starting in a Coca-Cola factory? Crazy stuff, that. If you can't wait to hear Owl City's new tunes, you can download them from iTunes!
