  • Lyrics
  • After working mostly by himself on the previous Owl City outings, Adam Young teamed up this time with the trio of Josh Crosby, Nate Campany and Dr. Luke's engineer Emily Wright on this reminder to never forget your roots. "I feel that as an artist you should never really look back or repeat yourself," Young told Billboard magazine: "This was sort of taking a flying leap on that way. I was a little bit scared at first because of all the co-writing and allowing other people to co-pilot this project, but listening back, as I live with it, I'm really excited about it. It was really fun to be able to bounce ideas off somebody else, and there was always this great magic in the room when there was somebody else right there with you to work on things."
