Christmas has come early for Vance Joy fans, with Aussie folk’s golden boy officially announcing his new album.
The follow-up to the homegrown minstrel’s beloved debut Dream Your Life Away will be dubbed Nation Of Two, and is set to hit shelves in February of 2018.
“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…” Vance explains.
“The idea that their love for each other gives them their bearings; a point of reference that makes sense of life.”
News of his second album’s imminent release comes punctuated with the arrival of a brand new rollicking folk toe-tapper dubbed ‘Like Gold’, which TBH sounds like it was custom-made for group campfire singalongs.
“I wrote ‘Like Gold’ after coming off the road at the start of 2016,” Vance recalls of the bittersweet track. “It started with a simple melody I was humming and the idea of looking back at a relationship.”
Nation Of Two will also include the first official single ‘Lay It On Me’.
Give its latest cut ‘Like Gold’ a spin below, and catch Vance Joy live when he hits the road for some east coast shows with Gretta Ray this November.
