Los Angeles pop-rock troubadour Corey Harper gained considerable traction with last year’s On the Run EP, scoring major festival appearances and a highly coveted Instagram endorsement from Justin Bieber. Today (Sept. 21), Billboard is premiering “No Good Alone,” a sunny, retrofitted pop-rock nugget that celebrates the simple pleasure of spending a lazy day with the person you love.
Harper, a professed classic rock and soul disciple, lays down tasteful John Mayer-esque licks over a relaxed backbeat, creating plenty of space for his smoky, understated vocals. The video shows him whiling away a gorgeous day inside his Venice Beach house with actress Daniele Ifrah. They don’t need grand gestures to make their affection for one another clear; they delight in having pillow fights, taking selfies and playing with their dog.
“During the best moments of being together with someone is when you realize how wrong it feels to be alone,” says the 22-year-old Harper. “This video captures how the best moments can occur in the simplest interactions together, wasting time with someone you care about.”
Harper’s about to make a lot more people care about him, as he’s set to open a handful of dates for Niall Horan in the next few months. Check out his full list of tour dates here and watch the idyllic “No Good Alone” video below.
