Following his sold-out show at Tuning Fork last month, Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy will croon his way back to our shores, performing in Auckland this September to celebrate the release of his latest album ‘Nation of Two’.
Vance Joy treated fans to an album preview on February 1, revealing the bright and uplifting ‘Saturday Sun’. Similar to ‘We’re Going Home’, ‘Saturday Sun’ is accompanied by a visual lyric video penned by Vance Joy himself. The track is proving an instant fan favourite having been streamed 1 million times in its first 5 days! ‘Saturday Sun’ joins ‘Lay It On Me’, ‘Like Gold’ and ‘We’re Going Home’ as instant downloads on album pre-orders.
During the tour announcement in mid-February, Vance Joy revealed another new track—the hauntingly beautiful album opener ‘Call If You Need Me’ along with a stunning clip. The track features Vance Joy’s trademark visual lyrics, painting pictures of fluorescent lights and conversations through foggy shower glass shot in a beautiful, stripped-back setting.
