Owl City records his interpretation of Stuat Townend's "In Christ Alone"
MAINSTREAM techno pop hitmaker Owl City has surprised industry observers
by posting a blog on his website with a stream offering his
interpretation of the popular modern hymn "In Christ Alone". The song
is composed by Ireland's Keith Getty and England's Stuart Townend.
Wrote Owl City on
his blog, "I was up late last night and decided to record a 'cover
song' of sorts. Not for anything special, just for fun. I'm 24 years
old, yet something about this song makes me bawl like a baby. The way
the melodies and lyrics swirl together is so poignant and beautiful.
If I were to count on one hand the number of songs that have ever
deeply moved me, this one would take the cake. Last night I probably
spent more time actually crying at the piano than I did recording it.
