Harper, the 11-year-old vocalist who took the internet by storm with her cover of Spiritbox’s “Holy Roller” as a contestant on last year’s “America’s Got Talent,” is back with a new single titled “Weight of the World.”
The track is a metalcore banger, written by Leo Valeri, guitarist and producer of deathcore act Brand of Sacrifice and features the vocal talents of Dave Stephens from We Came as Romans. Stream the track here, and watch the video below.
“‘Weight of the World’ was written about the last few years of my life,” Harper said. “I’m still so new to music, and I definitely felt there was a lot of pressure on my shoulders holding the flag for heavy music on such a commercial stage last year. It’s also a very empowering song, and I really hope through my music a lot of kids my age can discover heavy music and also be inspired to make their own. It was so good to work with Leo and Dave on this song. I’m a big fan of both of their bands, so to have them be a part of this was really cool!”
