Watch Carly Rae Jepsen, Owl City Have a 'Good Time' in New Video
One thing cannot be debated now that their new music video has been released: Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City know how to have a good time. The 26-year-olds split slurpees, dance fireside and generally hang out in the woods in the official clip for "Good Time," which was released on Tuesday (July 24).
Carly Rae and Owl City's Adam Young need to get out of the city to have a good time. So what do they do? The twentysomethings gather their good friends, drive out to a campground and kick it next to a log cabin while their pals hike through the woods. Night soon falls, but the fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down -- "It doesn't matter when! It's always a good time then," Young croons as his friends fist-pump into the cool night air.
The "Good Time" video was shot in upstate New York earlier this month, and the shoot actually marked the first time Jepsen and Young had met in person. The "Call Me Maybe" singer and "Fireflies" star recorded the track separately before it hit digital retailers on June 26, and netted each artist their second Top 20 hit on the Hot 100 (the song sits at No. 21 on last week's chart).
Jepsen and Young are slated to perform "Good Time" together on a handful of still-unannounced TV opportunities next month. The track serves as the lead single to Owl City's "The Midsummer Station," due out Aug. 21, and will also appear on Jepsen's much-anticipated sophomore album, out in September. "From our perspective, it made sense to have it on Carly's album," Jonathan Simkin, Jepsen's manager, told Billboard last month. "It's a great tune."
