Owl City Album Info

Posted by - 07:07 PM on 05/24/12
Owl City will release The Midsummer Station on August 14th. The album art will be unlocked once this page hits 5,000 shares on facebook and twitter.

Edit: Looks like it had to be 5,000 shares for just the first quarter of album art. The next quarter will get unlocked at 10,000 shares. - Thomas

I get why bands do it. Having said that, I'm glad the bands I listen to wouldnt stoop this low.

To get hype. If 20,000 people like something, a ton of people are going to see that on their news feed.

Well it just hit 5,000 and now the next piece is 10,000. There is no way that this is being shared that many times. Every time I hit refresh it jumps by about 50 shares.

The guy has 700,000 followers on Twitter. You'd be surprised how quickly 5,000 shares can go.

TBH with how big this guy was three years ago (ish) I'm surprised all the art isn't revealed at this point.

I'm stoked for the album, and I don't really have a problem with the share thing. If people don't want to do it, don't.

Why does a part of me think that this would be completely unlocked in a day when they/he/it was in the heyday of its time? Like post-fireflies?
