Behind the Scenes of 'Good Time'
Owl City sheds most of his signature synth sound on Shooting Star and The Midsummer Station to cater to more dance and pop music influences. This was the first time he collaborated with others, such as producers Stargate and Josh Crosby, Emily Wright , and Nate Campany.
Adam Young explained, “I made my first two records on my own without any outside help and learned that it’s easy to overthink what you do by allowing yourself to become too emotionally invested in what you’re doing." Young continues, “Initially, l was anxious about letting other people the solo endeavor l’d always played close to the chest, but it was exhilarating not having 100 percent control over what happened. In the end for me, it’s all about trying new things as an artist.” (Idolator)
