Aussie singer/songwriter Vance Joy is back witha new album and a video for the lead single "We're Going Home".
Last week was a special one for Vance Joy fans. Gracing the cover of Rolling Stone’s first magazine for 2018, the Melbourne musician turned global star also revealed the cover artwork and tracklisting for his keenly awaited sophomore album, 'Nation of Two', and announced a release date of February 23. This week, the good news continues to roll in, as Vance Joy shares "We’re Going Home", the new single from 'Nation of Two', complete with video.
"We’re Going Home" is the second single to be revealed from 'Nation of Two' and the third song to be unveiled from the album so far. A classic Vance Joy anthem sure to delight fans, the track follows on from last year’s platinum-selling hit "Lay It On Me", as well as fan favourite "Like Gold". The cinematic video was directed by Mimi Cave – who was also at the helm for "Lay It On Me" – and brings the song’s poignant lyrics gracefully to life.
Featuring 13 new songs, the keenly awaited sophomore album from Vance Joy carries the listener on an exquisite journey across fresh terrain. Tales of love and longing burst with emotion, anchored by Vance Joy’s delicate story-telling, masterful instrumentation and compelling vocals. Nation of Two’s title captures the mood of the new offering, with the cover artwork illustrated by the musician himself.
“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.” – Vance Joy.
