Owl City & Britt Nicole Collaborate on 'You're Not Alone'

Owl City has shown once again that he is not afraid to alienate his huge mainstream following in favour of making songs about his faith.


His latest track, featuring Britt Nicole, is entitled You're Not Alone and features lyrics that are quite explicitly about God.

Adam Young, founder of Owl City, says the song was inspired by a news story about a Sudanese woman who was to be hanged for being a Christian, before being rescued and transported to the US.

"God used that story in my life to touch my heart and say that for those who choose to follow Jesus and honour Him whole-heartedly, he's there with you."

"No matter how dark the day may seem, you are not alone and God knows exactly what you're going through."

"Ultimately, the message of the song is that there is hope and that Jesus Christ is that hope."
