Wang Feng – Existence

Wang Feng (汪峰) is a rock&roller in Mainland China — we’re talking a rock star in an Asian music scene where people think things are just pop. Wang Feng is mostly rock and some of those soft rock ballads. He’s pretty famous — he was one of the many faces featured in that Beijing Welcomes You [1] music video, which is kind of your best intro guide to anything that is Chinese music.

I came to learn of him — or I guess, his voice — on LiveJournal where someone gave me the chance to check out his 2009 album, Belief Flies in the Wind (信仰在空中飘扬), one of my favorite surprises that year — you can listen to it on Xiami. In fact, his song In the Spring (春天里) [translated lyrics] became a really big hit covered on different shows by a lot of different people [1] [2].

Apparently, Wang Feng released a 2-disc album entitled Life Asks for Nothing (生无所求) on November 25th. The first single from the album is Existence (存在). The song is Wang Feng’s sound and style.
