Maybe I'm Dreaming is the debut studio album by American electronica project Owl City, released on December 16, 2008. Despite having been self-released and not recorded by any major producer, it managed to reach the top 20 of the Billboard Electronic Music Album Chart.[1] The seventh track, "The Technicolor Phase", is featured on Alice in Wonderland's compilation album, Almost Alice.

Following the surprise success of Owl City's second album, Ocean Eyes, Maybe I'm Dreaming was pressed and re-released by Universal Republic on March 30, 2010.[2]

An official music video for the song "Early Birdie" was filmed in March 2008 by Young's childhood friends/bandmates Andy and Anthony Johnson (Windsor Airlift), and then released on January 11, 2011 via YouTube.[3]
