LOS ANGELES — 21-year-old Scottish phenom Connor Pearson and newly GRAMMY-nominated rapper D.R.A.M. have once again partnered with Red Bull Sound Select to transform their soulful dream-pop collaboration Free Fall into a full-fledged video game that channels all of the greatness of 8-bit nostalgia while still maintaining an exciting modern flair. Choose to play as Connor Pearson or D.R.A.M. as you soar through the air to the soundtrack of Free Fall, collecting guitars and stacks of money while avoiding broken hearts and adorable poop emojis.
“Free Fall feat. D.R.A.M” was released as part of a two-song digital single via Red Bull Sound Select in October of last year. The song was partly inspired by Pearson’s first trip to the States in 2015 where he was introduced to producer Doc McKinney. The two immediately headed into The Little Big Room studios (Eminem, Michael Jackson) and wrote and recorded “Free Fall” as well as the second track from the release, “That Way”.
The experience was overwhelming for Connor, who had previously only ever sung live in front of one other person. “The new setting in LA, with sunshine, surrounded by all the awards hanging in the studio and working with the legendary Doc McKinney definitely inspired the instrumentation in the song,” said Pearson.
You can play Free Fall on the official website.
