“Saturday Sun” follows the success of the recently released “We’re Going Home,” which came accompanied by an official music video (here) directed by frequent Vance Joy collaborator Mimi Cave (Sylvan Esso, tUnE-yArDs, Jim James).
“We’re Going Home” followed fan favorite “Like Gold” and the alternative hit single “Lay It On Me” as the third song available to fans from the forthcoming album Nation of Two. To date, the three released tracks from the album have already been streamed over 70 million times worldwide.
Nation of Two marks the follow-up to Vance Joy’s RIAA platinum certified worldwide breakthrough album, 2014’s dream your life away. Featuring 13 new songs, Nation of Two features tales of love and longing anchored by Vance Joy’s delicate storytelling, masterful instrumentation, and compelling vocals.
“Nation of Two describes a perfectly self-contained couple,” said Vance Joy, who also illustrated the album’s cover artwork. “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.”
2018 will bring another batch of high-profile festival performances for the artist, including the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and Shaky Knees. Last year Vance Joy became a fixture on the international festival circuit, performing at New York City’s Panorama, Chicago’s Lollapalooza, San Francisco’s Outside Lands, the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Montreal’s Osheaga Festival.
