Just 6 hours after the announcement of Sky Sailing’s presale for the album An Airplane Carried Me To Bed, the album jumped to the #4 spot on the Top Alternative Albums Chart on iTunes and the #18 spot on the Overall Albums Chart on iTunes.
Sky Sailing – An Airplane Carried Me to Bed – is an album of songs that Adam Young wrote and recorded before he started Owl City. More indie rock then whimsical electro-pop thanks to the acoustic guitar, piano and lyrics – the Sky Sailing album shows another side of Adam Young as an artist and songwriter. Early reviews have been very promising and the CD will be available for the first time ever on Universal Republic July 27th.
“Ever since Owl City’s Adam Young made the unprecedented rise from introverted basement-dweller to Top 40 king, his smooth vocals and effortless melodies have infiltrated the hippocampuses of millions of listeners. Less than a year after the release of ‘Ocean Eyes,’ ‘An Airplane Carried Me to Bed’-the debut from Young’s side project, Sky Sailing-is poised to do the same.”- Alternative Press
“…the lack of overt electronic effects successfully proves to his critics, myself included, that Adam Young is clearly more than a one hit wonder. ‘An Airplane Carried Me To Bed’ is a turbulence free journey for Owl City fans and skeptics alike.” – The Album Project
Sky Sailing’s An Airplane Carried Me To Bed is set for release on July 27th and from the amount of presales and early critic reviews coming in, it looks like Sky Sailing is heading for the same successful future as Owl City’s platinum selling Ocean Eyes!
