Here’s a bouncy yet relaxed contemplative daydream about “the good life,” to make your Sunday go down even better from Bearson featuring Lemaitre and josh pan.
Playful piano chords and synth melodies dance over a minimalist distorted hip-hop beat while josh pan muses repeatedly “We look for heaven, but it’s not this.”
“It’s Not This” is also featured the new FIFA 19 video game soundtrack alongside artists like Childish Gambino, Gorillaz, and LSD (Labrinth/Sia/Diplo supergroup).

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Over the last several years 24-year-old Oslo, Norway native Bearson has proven his knack for creating resonant music while also continuing to push and evolve his sound. He first captured the attention of the Soundcloud community and BBC Radio 1 with remixes of James Bay, astronomy, and Phoebe Ryan, followed by establishing himself as a stalwart of the Tropical House movement with his original singles “Pink Medicine,” “Want You,” and “Imposter” with OWSLA star Mark Johns. Now with over 40 million+ Spotify streams and almost half a million daily listeners, Bearson is ready to introduce his latest iteration.
After picking up his roots from Oslo, Bearson moved to Los Angeles where he co-founded Next Wave Records, the homegrown imprint that would help launch the careers of Atlas Bound, Kasbo and more, while solidifying Bearson’s penchant for identifying rising talent. That talent for A&R is something he puts to use when creating his own music, which Bearson has been meticulously crafting over the last couple years. Despite a meteoric rise, Bearson has stayed out of the spotlight since his 2017 single “Cold War” with Vic Mensa and Coldplay collaborator Mr. Hudson, choosing instead to devote himself to beat-making, working with fellow rising artists, and focusing on personal growth. “I took a few steps back and just made tons of music with so many talented people,” Bearson says. I’ve learned so much from the producers and writers I’ve met who have all inspired me in one way or another.”
