Vance Joy recently released his eagerly awaited sophomore album, Nation of Two. The already critically-acclaimed collection is available now at all music retailers and streaming services.
Nation of Two which includes the hit singles, Lay It On Me and Saturday Sun has quickly earned widespread critical applause around the world. The Australian singer-songwriter has gone deeper and broader, raved Newsday, making singalongs that sound even bigger, ready for the stadiums he played as (Taylor) Swifts opener. Entertainment Weekly adds, Joy focused on crafting piercing vignettes of young love and emotional restlessness --- and the results absolutely thrill. It all adds up to an appealing album from an artist with a promising future, wrote Associated Press. This is (Vance Joys) time to really shine and he seizes it.
Nation of Two has already amassed over 60 million worldwide streams, thanks to a series of five distinctive tracks unveiled in the months leading up to the albums official release. In addition to aforementioned Lay It On Me and Saturday Sun, the album was further heralded by beautifully written gems from the 13-track collection, Like Gold, Were Going Home, and Call If You Need Me, the latter joined by an emotional companion visual, filmed by frequent Vance Joy collaborator Mimi Cave, who also directed the videos for Lay It On Me and Were Going Home.
