Aloe Blacc! That could be a canny move. Sounds potentially quite strong from the clip, and I am indeed getting slight Wake Me Up vibes from the tune.

Can't wait to have a full-length again from him anyway, these EPs, as lovely as 'Tokyo' and 'Beautiful Times' were aren't really cutting it.

He has a Twitter chat thing coming up on the night between Thursday and Friday at 1 am UK and Ireland time. I've never participated but I'm going to this time. I have at least one question in mind to ask him. It's cool that he does that. So if people feel like they could manage to get off plug.dj a little earlier that night, come join us! #AskOwlCity

Not a fan of the lyrics. Just putting that out there. I expect more specific and geeky lyrics from Owl City. But then I guess I could say that about Good Time too.

The music, I'm not sure, it's very similar to Tokyo, it's quite similar to Wake Me Up, it's occupying a rather nice middle ground between Owl City's pop, Aloe Blacc's soul and then the dance thing that's been accompanying the latter for a while. However, I'm not BOWLED over just yet, I may well be after a few more listens.

sounds like a big smash, if Radio are still willing to play Owl City that is (they had no problem with Good Time anyway but I have a feeling that was only because Carly was featured)

Sounds really good, it might be over shadowed from Walk The Moon's hit "Shut Up And Dance", there are some similarities between the two tracks. Guess we have to wait for a release date to drop.

It's great. Sounds very 2011. I can't say I like Aloe Blacc's parts, though.

It is growing on me a bit, and it's definitely feelgood. Guess the video does help but it's driven home that this is just a club song about living for the moment with slightly more clever lyrics. That's not a good or a bad thing, just an observation.

Needs more Aloe Blacc, he basically sings nothing after the first few lines.
