Owl City has released a new single called "Dementia," featuring Blink-182's Mark Hoppus. The track offers a sneak peak of what to expect from the electro-pop act's new album.

Perhaps the collaboration shouldn't come off as too much of a surprise since Owl City's Adam Young sounds quite a bit like a young Tom DeLonge, Blink-182's guitarist and singer.

Hoppus not only joins Young on the chorus of "Dementia" -- "Dementia you're driving me crazy " -- but he also takes the vocal lead on the second verse.

Owl City's debut album, 2009's Ocean Eyes, peaked at No. 1 on the Dance/Electronica and Rock albums charts, while its hit lead single "Fireflies" topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Meanwhile, Owl City's last album, 2011's All Things Bright and Beautiful, reached No. 6 on The Billboard 200.

Hoppus recently reunited with DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker to release their sixth studio Blink-182 album in 2012. Neighborhoods peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock albums charts.
