Before the track “January 28, 1986” was released, Windsor Airlift (which was made up of Adam Young, Andy and Anthony Johnson) composed a track called “A Lovely Wedding, Snow & Sky”, released under the “Hotels” album.
The track features President Reagan’s speech honoring the victims of the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, a tragedy that forever changed the nation’s space program.

Adam Young, you music means the world to myself and the rest
of the HootOwls. Thank you so much for creating the music you do, and for being the faithful person you are.
Cast, to whom I owe so much.

So much thanks has to be given to Kristen and Weston. They did
so much for this project and for me with nothing in return. It was
a completely selfless task and I am forever grateful.
Also thanks should be given to my parents and all my HootOwl friends that have stuck
around to support myself and this project with great patience.
Well the time has finally come and #ProjectEgg. is finally done.
What an insane journey it’s been completing this project.
So much stress, so much joy and of course so many feels.
The delay for releasing the video stems from the immense
amount of technical issues I had during the editing process.
I’ve never taken on such a large project nor have a worked
with such a complex uncharted workflow before.
We put so much hard work and dedication into this you wouldn’t believe.
Days of planning and coming up ideas.
We tried to add in as many small details as we could into the video to match the song.
We heard that the book “Airborne” by Kenneth Oppel had inspired Adam to write this song. So naturally
Weston picked it up and read it. That really fueled us with so many ideas and small details we could throw into this.
In the book there’s even a line that reads, “If my heart was a compass, you’d be north.”
The main female in the video played by the wonderful Kristen (@kristenpajamas) was named after the female lead in the book “Kate”
The compass necklace we found online and we knew as soon as we saw it that it would go perfectly into the video as our biggest symbol and link to the song. It was handmade by Mellissa! You can find her Etsy shop here - http://www.etsy.com/shop/OneFortyFive She has some amazing things to check out for sure!
Throughout the video the man (Matt) is preparing to visit the grave of his dead girlfriend (Kate).
During that time he sees things that remind him of the great times they had together.
You see flashbacks between to those events.
