Melbourne treasure Vance Joy has set 2018 on a brilliant trajectory with the announcement of his highly anticipated sophomore album Nation Of Two, due for release on February 23. To keep us satisfied until then, Vance Joy has shared a tender new single ‘We’re Going Home.’
As we’ve come to expect from Vance, the latest single is equal parts sensitive and catchy. His pure voice glides through soaring melodies as he sings of love and belonging. ‘We’re Going Home’ builds from a soft acoustic soundscape to a euphoric chorus full of triumphant brass and the cinematic video, directed by Mimi Cave, matches the supreme poignancy of this new offering.
Vance has previously shard to cuts of the upcoming album, the powerfully yearning single ‘Lay It On Me‘ and reflective folk track ‘Like Gold‘. With 13 tracks of emotional storytelling and compelling melodies, Nation Of Two is bound to be at least as heartrending and warming as his phenomenal debut album dream your life away, which featured mega-hit ‘Riptide‘.
Vance explains, “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.”
Very big vibe to follow the narrative in its entirety when Nation Of Two is revealed Friday, 23 February.
