Adam Young has been known for creating his first two albums by singing, playing, engineering, mixing and producing them himself. This formula lead to the success of his 2009 debut album “Ocean Eyes” with the hit single “Fireflies.” Now, three years after the success of “Fireflies,” his new single “Good Time” is different from its predecessors. Plus, he teams up with singing sensation Carly Rae Jepsen in this new song which is a first for Adam Young.
Adam Young’s duet with Carly Rae Jepsen has helped “Good Time” stay for 13 weeks at the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Last week, it was at No.8 – the second Top 10 hit for both artists. With the song’s success, it has pushed Young’s third album, “The Midsummer Station,” into the Top 10 and to No. 2 on the digital chart. With such success this song won’t be the only track from the album to be a sure hit.
“Good Time” is going viral on the radio and internet. In fact, cover versions of the song are posted on YouTube every week. An artist who recently joined the bandwagon is singer and songwriter Taylor Olson. She is an artist from Salt Lake City Utah and in her cover version of “Good Time,” she teams up with Nik Day to create a unique version with an acoustic twist.
Taylor Olson writes and performs her own songs and she has recently release her first EP. Like Carly and Adam before they became pop stars, Taylor Olson is a simple artist who just wants to show the world the love and the passion she has for her music.
“Good Time” isn’t the only collaboration from Young’s latest album. Adam Young has collaborated with other artists including Blink-182. As mentioned, his latest album is different from his first two albums. Young realized that he had wanted to put out an album of dance music for a long time.
"It's all about trying new stuff for me," Adam says. "And right now it's been sort of dance-inspired, a little bit edgier music that isn't that hard to figure out. It's designed to carry you and
let you check out of reality a little bit."
Taylor Olson’s cover version of “Good Time” is receiving more than 1,000 views per day. One of her most viewed covers is of Taylor Swift’s “Safe and Sound.” Olson’s debut EP Love is for the Birds is available on iTunes.
