The Canadian singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen wrote and co-wrote songs on the album entitled Kiss, collaborating with songwriters and producers Max Martin, Dallas Austin, LMFAO’s Redfoo, Toby Gad, Marianas Trench singer Josh Ramsay and Matthew Koma. Jepsen’s latest single “Good Time,” a duet with Owl City, has climbed to No. 3 on the Pop Chart, No. 5 on the iTunes Singles chart, and No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100, while the video, featuring Jepsen and Young, has racked up more than six million views on VEVO.

“These are lyric and song ideas that I have been collecting over the years,” Jepsen says of Kiss. “I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to be able to collaborate with some of my dream producers. It has been the most fulfilling experience. The record is pop. It’s inspired by Robyn, The Cars, Madonna, and believe it or not, James Taylor. I can’t wait to share it with everyone! Kiss.”

OWL CITY (American pop-electro artist) and CARLY RAE JEPSEN (“Call Me Maybe” internet sensation) vow to create a unique smash hit as they team up together for the teenybopper summer anthem, “Good Time”. The duet is the third single that Owl City has released in less than two months, following “Shooting Star” and “Dementia”, both lifted from his Shooting Star EP. According to Billboard.com, Owl City (Adam Young) worked with pop producers Emily Wright and frequent Rihanna collaborator Stargate for his upcoming album entitled “The Midsummer Station”. He is joined by Jepsen, the voice behind the undeniably catchy “Call Me Maybe,” for the album’s infectious first single, a track that could possibly be the next viral tune on the worldwide web.
The promising new single, which was just released to digital retailers last June 26, has already generated positive reviews.
OWL CITY’s THE MIDSUMMER STATION album will be out soon in CDs exclusively under MCA Music available at Astroplus and Odyssey Music & Video or online via www.MyMusicStore.com.ph
