New York, NY (July 24, 2021) – Nicolas McCoppin has dropped the first video in a series of live performances the singer-songwriter recorded of tracks from his forthcoming record, "Loverboy (The Heartthrob Edition)."

"Perfect Pictures" is the first of a string of performances from McCoppin's live stream concert with record label AWAL and SoundCity Liverpool's Guesthouse platform. The show took place on July 15 at Planet Rose Karaoke Bar in New York City. McCoppin is accompanied on piano by his creative partner and songwriter Liam Benayon.

The record tells the not-so-perfect tale of young, queer heartbreak. A darker, deeper, and dance-heavy track, "Perfect Pictures" explores the other end of Nicolas McCoppin's previously optimistic love songs. Produced with an all queer team, "Perfect Pictures" is a vibrant & honest dance-pop record. The song showcases both his vocal range & clever lyricism, reaffirming Ascribe Magazine's testament that Nicolas "comes across as a storyteller, first and foremost." "Perfect Pictures" is the first new single of "Loverboy (The Heartthrob Edition)," continuing the Loverboy saga. The single & repackage follows a successful radio campaign for "Heaven," which marks McCoppin's first Top 40 Mediabase chart entry.

The performance comes just days ahead of the long-awaited release of "Loverboy (The Heartthrob Edition)." Releasing July 30, 2021, via Loverboy Recordings, AWAL/Kobalt Music Group. The all-new deluxe edition shares the classic tale of queer love and heartbreak. Led by US radio Top 40 single "Heaven," and packed with infectious yet heartfelt hooks, this project solidifies McCoppin as a trailblazer in the next generation of pop.
