Adam Young, aka Owl City, has a very special gift for his dad this Father’s Day: a sentimental song and video in his honor, titled “Not All Heroes Wear Capes.” His father, Randy Young, even gets to co-star in the clip.
“For this Father’s Day, I wrote ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes’ to tell my dad I love him. As an introvert, I’ve haven’t been overly vocal in telling the people in my life that I cherish them. This song is just my way of telling my dad how much I respect and appreciate him. I only hope to someday be as good of a man as he is,” Young tells People.
The video was filmed in Owatonna, Minn., in Mr. Young’s shop at home.
“He loves his workshop and rock ‘n’ roll / He’s got a hot rod and a heart of gold / You could say he’s a man of few words, but he talks a lot within / And even though I’m a little taller, I still look up to him,” Young sings on the acoustic track.
