Today, Vance Joy – Melbourne-born singer/songwriter turned international treasure – has confirmed he will follow-up his Platinum-accredited and beloved debut album Dream Your Life Away (2014) with a hugely-anticipated sophomore album.
Nation of Two is due for release in February 2018. It will feature the previously released soaring slow-burner ‘Lay It On Me‘ and a brand new album track also revealed today.
“I wrote Like Gold after coming off the road at the start of 2016. It started with a simple melody I was humming and the idea of looking back at a relationship,” explains Vance Joy aka James Keogh.
“Nation Of Two describes a perfectly self-contained couple; their world beginning and ending at the bed they share, the car they ride in, or any other place where they’re together…The idea that their love for each other gives them their bearings; a point of reference that makes sense of life,” Keogh says of the album.
In just two weeks Vance Joy will return to home to throw down two very sold-out shows – one in in Melbourne and Sydney as well as headlining Spilt Milk Festival in Canberra.
