Adam Young to Release First Collection of Songs with Sky Sailing Debut Album – An Airplane Carried Me to Bed – due out July 27th on Universal Republic

New York, NY – Adam Young was a mere teenager in Owatonna, MN when he wrote and recorded his first collection of songs under the moniker Sky Sailing.  Never expecting these early recordings to see the light of day, he’s excited to be able to share these songs with you on July 27th when Universal Republic releases An Airplane Carried Me to Bed.  The album offers 11 songs that trace back the genesis of Adam Young as a songwriter and showcase a simple innocence through their sound and openhearted lyrics.

The world got their first peek into the world of Sky Sailing a few weeks ago when Adam quietly posted demo versions of two songs that will be on the album, “Brielle” and “I Live Alone,” on MySpace.  Written and recorded nearly three years ago, the songs that Adam Young did as Sky Sailing reflect the wonder and excitement of an artist when they’re going through the process of discovery and everything is new to them.  Adam was working the early shift as a metal worker during this time period and spent the night hours escaping through his dreams and music.  With an acoustic guitar and some basic computer and recording equipment, he took himself on a fast and furious journey crafting and honing his skills as a musician and an artist and writing 11 songs that he squirreled away until now.

It’s been more then two and a half years since Adam Young wrote these Sky Sailing songs and just in the last year alone, this young man has been on a tremendous life journey.  Having travelled the world and met thousands of people over the last 18 months, the upcoming release of Sky Sailing’s An Airplane Carried Me to Bed is a homecoming of sorts, a return to a time when things were pure and simple.

Sky Sailing – An Airplane Carried Me to Bed – is due out July 27th on Universal Republic.  Check out www.myspace.com/skysailing for the most up-to-date information.
