Owl City Releases Official Music Video for Shooting Star

Late last week, Owl City unleashed the music video for “Shooting Star,” the second single off of his latest studio album The Midsummer Station, available now via Republic Records. “Shooting Star” has garnered nearly 2 million views in less than 5 days, and is the follow up to his duet with Carly Rae Jepsen, “Good Time” which is nearing double platinum status. “Shooting Star” is set to impact radio in the US in early 2013.


In addition to “Shooting Star,” Owl City also released the official music video for “When Can I See You Again,” the end title track for Disney/Pixar’s forthcoming release Wreck-It Ralph, which is in theaters this Friday, November 2nd. Watch the video by clicking below!
