Owl City announces UK dates

By | Published on Thursday 1 April 2010

Chart topping emo-popster Owl City, aka Adam Young, has announced that he’ll be over in the UK next month for a couple of live shows.

On his sudden rise to fame, bolstered by a few tracks uploaded to the web, Young told CMU: “I can’t believe how fast things have taken off. It seems like it was only yesterday I put a few songs from my first EP online and watched things begin to happen on their own. I never thought music could spread like mine did through the internet. I do know one thing though: I just wanted to keep creating. It’s a lot of fun and it’s the only thing in the world I’m good at. So it’d be a real shame to stop”.

His new single, ‘Umbrella Beach’, is due for release on 17 May via Universal.

Tour dates:

8 May: Glasgow, Barrowlands
9 May: London, Shepherds Bush Empire
