Cody Simpson Is A “Happy Lil Hippie”

Cody Simpson Is A "Happy Lil Hippie"

Cody Simpson takes a page out of Miley Cyrus’ book with his new single “Happy Lil Hippie.”

The 18-year-old shares his new song off his upcoming album “Free” today (June 30), a beachy laid-back tune inspired by the sounds of John Mayer (we think).

“I wrote the song about a girl I met on the street in Venice Beach,” he tells Billboard. “She had this whole bohemian look to her. After sharing some conversation with her, I realized that we shared a lot of the same views on life, and on the world.”

“She was so non-conformist and so happy, and just lived her life the way she wanted to,” he added.

Listen to the new song below and be sure to preorder “Free” (out July 10).
