Following the release of last month's "Better," Corey Harper is keeping the emotional streak running with his new single "Best of Me."

The stirring new cut arrived Friday and it's the latest off the singer-songwriter's upcoming Barely Put Together EP. As we previously mentioned, that project is coming Aug. 2 via AWAL Recordings.

"I started out by making a lot of Americana folk rock, but I really wanted to explore new sounds," says of the EP. "For the first time, the new music reflects everything—from what inspired me to be a musician and a guitar player in the first place such as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Jackson Browne, to artists I've just discovered in recent years like Ed Sheeran. There are those songwriter elements as well as the modern nuances."

As Harper continues to explore and show more vulnerability, it's a welcome shift, with "Best of Me" showcasing his strength when he taps into that energy.
