To start this post, tonight Adam Young released his latest Owl City track, and it's amazing. A. May. Zing.
This is just the audio, but I'm crossing my fingers for a music video. He hasn't released a music video since Shine Your Way, from the Croods, and that was just promotion for a movie. He hasn't released one for an original track since Shooting Star in October of 2012! It's been WAY too long!
To make this already amazing track even better, it features Lindsey Stirling! I had imagined what it would be like if they collaborated, but I never dreamed it would actually happen. He's almost a mainstream artist, she's a YouTuber, it's not often you see the two kinds of artists working together. But I guess the boundaries are blurring, and he also got his start on the internet, so I guess I shouldn't have discounted the possibility.
Speaking of Lindsey Stirling, She recently released an orchestral version of Transcendence, and it is amazing!
And the Landfill Harmonic make an appearance! I was so surprised to see them!
Next up is a Peter Hollens video, a collaboration with Mike Tompkins.
The video was meant to commemorate his wife's pregnancy. And speaking of his wife:
The last video I'll share today is Evynne Hollens' cover of Brave. I actually don't think I've heard the original of this song before, and I'm not sure I want to now. This one is just too good.
In case anyone is wondering, she had their baby a few days ago, and his name is Ashland James.
Edit: Never mind what I said above, about not wanting to hear the original. I looked it up. It is just as amazing, and I have to include the video. It's too good not to share.
I love the joy in uninhibited dancing. :)
