Owl City star Adam Young was thrilled after landing a Mark Hoppus collaboration for his new album, calling it a "dream come true" to record with the Blink-182 rocker.
The singer/songwriter was relieved his childhood hero turned out to be "incredibly genuine" after teaming up with Hoppus to record the track Dementia.
Young tells MTV News, "I learned (from collaborating with him) that it is possible to be at a level (of success) where Mark is at and still be incredibly genuine and incredibly real. Because, first of all, I've never laughed so hard in the session 'cause the guy's so funny...
"But it was so cool and I've been such a nerdy Blink fan forever. I was like, 'There he is. He's in the studio and he's singing on my song. I can't believe it.' Totally (a) dream come true, it was awesome."
Young also admits the track was inspired by the pop-punk band, adding, "It's definitely Blink-influenced. I've been such a fan of what they do, what Blink's done since junior high... It sounds like an older B-side, rarity Blink track. It's so cool. It's such an honour."
Dementia will be included on Owl City's upcoming release The Midsummer Station, due to hit music retailers next month (Aug12).
