Mobile Orchestra is the 2015 release from multi-platinum, chart-topping pop trailblazer Owl City. Verge (feat. Aloe Blacc)
combines Owl City's sweeping vocals and boisterous, bouncy production with Aloe Blacc's strikingly smooth signature croon. Fusing pop, electronic, alternative and R&B, it's the perfect start for the latest musical adventure from multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer Adam Young-aka Owl City. Mobile Orchestra also features "You're Not Alone (feat. Britt Nicole)," which was released as a single last year and hit No. 1 on the Christian Hot AC/CHR chart. With hopeful lyrics that reference his faith, Young says the song "taps into a sentiment and emotionality that everyone can relate to: feeling alone." "In your darkest moments, sometimes Jesus chooses to draw on nearest to you," Young continued. "The reminder that He is there with you, that He has your back, is an amazing, life-transforming thing. The song is simply a reminder that God is there for those who call upon Him."
The final song is "This Isn't the End," Mobile Orchestra's inspirational closing track. Musically conceived everywhere from airports and hotels to tour buses, hence the title Mobile Orchestra, the album follows up 2012's Midsummer Station, which debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 and boasted the double-platinum duet with Carly Rae Jepsen, Good Time.
The new record also features standout collaborations with country star Jake Owen, Back Home,
pop luminaries Hanson, Unbelievable,
and more. Meanwhile, tracks like My Everything
and Bird with a Broken Wing
illuminate his progression as a songwriter with a balance between vibrancy and vulnerability.
