Music Friday: Owl City Performs ‘Gold’ at the Jingle Ball in St. Paul, Minn.

Welcome to Music Friday when we feature songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, Owl City—featuring singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young—performs its new single “Gold” at the Jingle Ball in St. Paul, Minn. In the song’s catchy electronica-laced refrain, Young declares, “You’re starting to shine ’cause what you got is go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old. I know, you’re gold.”

Formed in Young’s parents’ basement in Owatonna, Minn., in 2007, Owl City earned commercial success and global acclaim two years later with its quadruple-platinum hit “Fireflies.”  The single, “Gold,” is from the group’s fourth studio album, The Midsummer Station, which was released in August of this year.

In the video below, Young is supported with backing vocals by keyboardist Breanne Düren during a performance at the Jingle Ball in his home state on December 4. The lyrics to “Gold” are below if you’d like to sing along.

“Gold”

Written by Adam Young. Performed by Owl City, featuring Adam Young with Breanne Düren.

Stand on up and take a bow
There’s something there, and it’s showing
There’s no need to look around
You’re the best we’ve got going

Shout out to the dreams you’ll chase
Shout out to the hearts you’ll break
Nothing’s gonna stop you now
I guess you better be goin’

You’ll never be far, I’m keeping you near
Inside of my heart, you’re here
Go on, it’s gotta be time
You’re starting to shine

‘Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don’t need the stars in the night,
I found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, You’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, you’re gold.

It won’t take you long to get
When you feel like you’re soarin’
So write it all and don’t forget
You gotta tell us your story

Shout out to the friends back home
Shout out to hearts you’ve known
You gave ’em nothing but the best
Yeah, and you can tell ’em your story

You’ll never be far, I’m keeping you near
Inside of my heart, you’re here
Go on, it’s gotta be time
You’re starting to shine

‘Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, you’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don’t need the stars in the night,
I’ve found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, you’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, you’re gold.

‘Cause what you got is
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, you’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, I know
I don’t need the stars in the night,
I’ve found my treasure.
All I need is you by my side
So shine forever
Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-old,
I know, you’re gold.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oh,
I know, you’re gold.

You’re gold
You’re gold
You’re gold
