9to5Mac is reporting that Owl City was behind many of the new iOS 7 ringtones. Kinda feel like they should have gone for Ben Gibbard and left Owl City to Samsung ... but what can you do?
According to his discography page, Owl City founder and singer Adam Young is the creator of iOS 7′s sounds. While the visual design changes are most evident in the new operating system, another noticeable change is how most of the regular sounds are revamped and a slew of new ring and text tones are included.

Owl City aims for mass appeal with his forthcoming The Midsummer Station (as if that collaboration with Carly Rae Jepsen left things unclear). The bedroom pop wizard sat down with PureVolume to discuss how he went about making an "accessible" album that will overcome his "quirky stigma". He also details his work with Relient K's Matt Thiessen and more.
