Hot on the heels of previous hit single “Not In These Boots”, country music singer songwriter Natalie Pearson returns with a heart-warming new single which touches on the aftermath of a breakup.
“is he happy” gracefully navigates the terrain of a past love, where the lyric poignantly expresses hopes for the happiness and fulfilment of a former partner. This pop-country ballad delves into the complexities of moving on, while still cherishing the memories of what once was. The song’s poignant narrative explores the bittersweet feeling of wanting the best for someone you once cared deeply about, even if it means accepting a life apart. With its intimate vocals and delicate production, “is he happy” evokes a genuine emotional connection with its listeners. The soulful performance captures the essence of vulnerability, making it a compelling anthem for anyone who has experienced the aftermath of a heartfelt relationship. This raw display of emotion invites listeners to reflect on their own experiences, making “is he happy” a relatable and deeply personal listening experience. Having written this song many years ago, Natalie felt it was time to release it to her fans as it tells a story everyone can relate to.
“Is he happy” came from a place of wondering how life panned out for a past love, if they got their happiness and dream family life that they’d always hoped for. It had been in the vault of voice memos for a while, and I finished the write with my producer Jared Adlam during covid. I had been nervous to release such a vulnerable song or bring up a sad past, but I think it’s a selfless and reflective sentiment to wish someone happiness, let go and release it completely”.
With high rotation adds on major country music stations such as KIX Country, Triple M Country, iHeart Country and ABC Country, Natalie Pearson continues to push the boundaries with each release. “Not In These Boots” garnered attention from Spotify’s editorial playlists Fresh Country and Fresh Country Finds as well as Apple Music playlists and the music video is currently sitting at #16 on the CMT Australia Charts.
Perth born and having resided on Queensland’s Gold Coast for the past 6 years; Natalie has spent that time establishing herself as a dedicated and popular artist with a rapidly growing fanbase.
