Today Poo Bear, one of the music industry’s most successful creative forces, has released his new single “Distant Shore.” Co-written by himself, Nabeel Y. Zahid, Sasha Sirota, Luis Manuel Martinez and Michael Michael, and co-produced by himself, Sasha Sirota, and SHDNO the song encapsulates that of a siren’s call. Poo Bear sings, “From across the vast and open sea / Was it your sole mission to enchant me? / From across the ocean’s wide expanse / You’ve drawn me into your mystical trance.” Between his impassioned vocal and the track’s electronic, upbeat energy he has created the perfect song to dance to all night long. This is the first track of many, as an album is on its way.
"It’s about a forbidden love,” Poo Bear says. “Every time we think we’ve reached her, we wake up to the reality that she was only a dream."
Earlier this year Poo Bear released “The Day You Left.” Co-written with Nabeel Y. Zahid and co-produced by himself, Skrillex and Sasha Sirota the song captures loss in all its forms. He also announced his joint venture agreement with Def Jam Recordings, a sub-label of Universal Music Group, for his label Bearthday Music.
Poo Bear greets everyone by saying, “Happy Birthday.” For as unexpected as it may be, it always incites a smile. Then again, everything about the two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur is just as unpredictable. His gracious demeanor belies a downright unbelievable career. Earmarked by blockbuster smashes such as Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?”, Usher’s “Caught Up,” Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours,” and Chris Brown’s “I Can Transform Ya” [feat. Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz] as well as the 13-times platinum “Despacito (Remix)” [feat. Justin Bieber] for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, his catalog has registered sales of over 350 million records worldwide, dozens of multi-platinum certifications, and 100 billion streams and counting.
At the same time, his entrepreneurial portfolio includes Black Star Burger, HFACTOR water, 3D Live, Wonderbrett dispensary, and gaming team 100 Thieves. Plus, he gives back by running a toy drive with the LAPD. Everything Poo Bear does might just make you feel like it’s your birthday too.
