Owl City Readying Side Project Sky Sailing (Which Sounds Just Like Owl City)

If you’ve eagerly been awaiting a side project from main Owl City dude Adam Young that seemingly ditches the synths for guitars, then you’re in luck! Sky Sailing is such a project, and according to the MySpace set up for it/them, the album An Airplane Carried Me To Bed is due out July 13. Two guitar-and-piano-laden demos—”Brielle” and “I Live Alone”—are also up on MySpace, and if anything, they reveal that Sky Sailing is basically Owl City Unplugged. After the jump: Owl City’s most recent video for fourth Ocean Eyes single “Umbrella Beach.”

Adam Young fans will be saddened by the fact that the Minnesota native does not appear in this followup clip to “Vanilla Twilight.” But here’s a pic of him wearing what appears to be aviator goggles and a flight oxygen mask from Sky Sailing’s MySpace to ease your pain.

Young also tweeted today that the “Long Lost Sun Remix” of “Umbrella Beach” is available for free from Owl City’s official site.
