Owl City checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@owlcity) on Friday (March 5), offering an update on the ‘Ocean Eyes Deluxe Edition’ release, Twitter, and his appreciation for the fans. The ‘Fireflies’ singer writes:
I can never say this enough, so I’ll keep on saying it until the cows come home. My house is pretty hard to find, so I hope the aforementioned cows have access to a sweet GPS, but at any rate: I would like to say thank you.
I am a shy, small town boy with big dreams and you’ve made them become reality. You’ve even made “Fireflies” the 24th most downloaded song of all time on iTunes! I blush a lot these days. Words can’t describe the immense gratitude I feel — and it’s quite humbling. I am honored to be allowed to do what I do and I’m indescribably grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given. PTL!
