Owl City has announced a UK tour for later this year.
The electro phenomenom, whose real name is Adam Young, releases his fourth studio album ‘The Midsummer Station’ later this year and will play four dates in support of it in October.
The gigs begin at London’s HMV Forum on October 25, before moving onto Birmingham’s HMV Library on October 26. Young then plays Manchester Academy 3 on October 30 before finally finishing up at Oxford’s O2 Academy 2 on October 31.
‘The Midsummer Station’ is the follow-up to Young’s 2011 album ‘All Things Bright And Beautiful’ and will be released on September 17 in the UK. The album is confirmed to feature a duet with ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer Carly Rae Jepsen and is also thought to include a track with Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus.
Young has collaborated with a series of super-producers on the album, including Katy Perry/Kelly Clarkson collaborator Dr Luke and Rihanna/Ne-Yo co-writing team Stargate.
