"Good Time" is the lead single off Owl City's "The Midsummer Station," due Aug. 21 on Universal Republic, and the song will also appear on Jepsen's sophomore album, expected in September.

Jepsen -- the former "Canadian Idol" contestant whose "Call Me Maybe" has sold 4.3 million downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan -- and Young -- the mastermind behind Owl City and numerous other bands whose 2009 single "Fireflies" has moved 4.5 million downloads -- hadn't met before the recording of "Good Time." But the two 26-year-olds were introduced by Scooter Braun, the head of Jepsen's new U.S. label, Schoolboy Records, and Owl City manager Steve Bursky. The two impresarios grew up together just outside of New York City and reconnected in 2009, when "Fireflies" was riding high and Braun was managing up-and-comer Justin Bieber.

Three years later, the childhood pals were still trying to devise a way to work together. Bursky sent Braun new songs from Owl City's next album after Jepsen had signed to Schoolboy/Interscope in February.

"I heard 'Good Time' and said, 'Why isn't this the first single?'" Braun recalls. After Bursky agreed that Jepsen's voice would add a whole new sound to "Good Time," Braun brought onboard Jonathan Simkin, Jepsen's manager and co-founder of her Canada label, 604 Records. Jepsen's vocals were recorded in March in Ottawa, months after Young had produced the track earlier in the year. The two singers never met until after the single's release, finally getting together for a video shoot in early July.

For Young, "Good Time" represents the follow-up hit that the introverted electro-pop talent had been seeking since "Fireflies" helped his second full-length Owl City album, "Ocean Eyes," sell 1.1 million copies, according to SoundScan. The song "Shooting Star" was originally chosen as the impact single for The "Midsummer Station," but Bursky's team changed gears in June after "Call Me Maybe" took off. "[interscope] was looking for another single for Carly," Bursky says, "and it made a lot of sense. It just feels like a big summer record."

Bursky adds that the "Good Time" video will be released "as soon as humanly possible." He says Jepsen and Young have also locked in about a half-dozen major TV opportunities for the weeks surrounding the release of his album, in which the pop upstarts will perform together. As the song continues its top 40 push, Young will continue on a promotional tour that began July 9 in Toronto, followed by a global concert tour starting Sept. 5 in Nashville.

As for Jepsen, a solo single will likely be released before the highly anticipated arrival of her next album, and her opening stint on Bieber's fall arena tour begins Sept. 29. For the rising star's team of handlers, placing "Good Time" on her next full-length release was a no-brainer. "From our perspective, it made sense to have it on Carly's album," Simkin says. "It's a great tune."

I guess the title won't be Call Me Maybe, or Good Time - or she would have told us. My guess is that the third single (to be announced) will be the album title too. maisy

Curiosity better be on it ny9

considering it was a hit in Canada (peaked at #18 - despite the powerful wake of CMM), it should be on it. Mind you, I still want to know what happened to the video that they shot? That thing was in the can before Good Time came out. um1

I like! Your listing would be perfect in the US.

I think the Canadian Version will be different to the US one due to the EP coming out here, and the International One could be slightly different from the US one.

I would bet the Canadian Version will come out as a standard only version - no deluxe. Here is my Guess:

1. Call Me Maybe

2. Good Time (with Owl City)

3. New Track - ft Justin Bieber (4th Cdn Single - 3rd World Wide) - released Sept 11th

4. New Track - (prod. Bonnie McKee)

6. New Track - (ft. Redfoo)

7. New Track - (ft. fun.)

6. Dear Julien

7. Alice in Wonderland

Carly Rae Jepsen just dished some exclusive deets on her duet with Justin Bieber! She spilled, "The Justin song, I'm kind of sworn to secrecy on because I think we want to release it together at one moment. But the rest of the album, I'm really excited for!" Carly has been teasing her fans about the single with Justin, and we can't wait for it!
