New York, NY – Multi-platinum international sensation Owl City has penned a new song – “To the Sky” – to serve as the theme to Director Zack Snyder’s animation debut Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (Warner Bros. Pictures/Village Roadshow Pictures). Based on Kathryn Lasky novels Guardians of G’Hoole, the film opens nationwide in theatres and IMAX on September 24th in both 3D and 2D and will be accompanied by an original motion picture soundtrack that will be released on September 21st by WaterTower Music.

“It is such an incredible honor to be part of this film. As a fan of both the children’s book series growing up, and Zack Snyder’s work as a director, having my music included is pretty surreal. I’ve been waiting for someone to make a movie like this for some time now. I’m endlessly grateful to be involved.” – Owl City’s Adam Young

Owl City’s “To the Sky” is featured prominently within the film and then plays again as it soars over the end title sequence. It’ll be released as the soundtrack’s first single and will be accompanied by a music video that incorporates themes and imagery from the film. In addition, “To the Sky” anchors the exciting soundtrack which includes the heroic musical landscapes of the Academy Award nominee and BAFTA award winning Davis Hirschfelder’s score.

This past year has been a whirlwind for Owl City, whose debut album, Ocean Eyes, was released in July 2009 and was certified platinum less than a year later on April 1st 2010. The first single, “Fireflies,” is now triple platinum and hit the #1 spot on the Hot 100 twice, as well as going #1 in 23 countries around the world. Over the past year, Owl City has amassed an impressive touring record and a slew of critical acclaim (New York Times, Rolling Stone, People, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, etc.) and Adam Young is currently working on Owl City’s follow up to Ocean Eyes – due out early 2011.

“To the Sky” is the first new Owl City song to be released since Summer 2009’s Ocean Eyes. Check out the soundtrack to Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole on September 21st on WaterTower Music and be sure to catch the film in theatres nationwide and IMAX on September 24th.
