Owl City‘s Adam Young Elaborates on Taylor Swift Crush, Describes New Album and More

When Owl City released ‘Fireflies’ in the summer of 2009, frontman Adam Young didn’t know what to expect. But the 24-year-old synth-pop artist couldn’t believe when the song instantly became an No. 1 hit in the US and 24 other countries around the world.

Now, Young is back with ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ — the follow-up to his debut record, ‘Ocean Eyes’ — out on June 14. AOL Music had the chance to talk to Young about how he’s grown up on his sophomore album, his fascination with the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster and if anything every happened after he serenaded Taylor Swift on Valentine’s Day.
