Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Vance Joy has shared his emotionally charged new track, “Every Side of You,” out today via Atlantic Records (listen). Now boasting over 5 billion worldwide streams and counting, the track arrives alongside an equally poignant official music video, directed by Bill Bleakley (watch). “Every Side of You” heralds Joy’s highly anticipated third studio album, In Our Own Sweet Time, arriving everywhere on Friday, June 10th; pre-orders are available now HERE.
Joy’s most creatively inventive and personal project thus far, In Our Own Sweet Time includes his recently released track “Clarity,” produced and co-written with GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter Joel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift) and joined by an official music video streaming HERE.
“Clarity” is fast proving another landmark success for Joy, currently ascending the top 25 at Alternative radio outlets nationwide after amassing critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone and V Magazine, which raved, “‘Clarity’ is bubbly and bright…Groovy bass, sharp drums, and Joy’s usual guitar blend together with uplifting horn solos to create the perfect summer tune.” “The new track adds a world of depth to the folky indie-pop slant of Joy’s earlier material,” agreed NME, “supplementing his cool and cruisy acoustic strumming with deep bass grooves, crisp and lowkey yet duly impactful drums, and a soaring horn section.”
In Our Own Sweet Time also includes hit singles, “Missing Piece” and “Don’t Fade,” the latter of which arrived earlier this year and quickly earned more than 10 million worldwide streams alongside praise from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Tonight, and more.
Currently certified RIAA Gold in the US and 2x Platinum in Australia, “Missing Piece” proved a global sensation following its 2021 world premiere on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Reaching #2 at Alternative radio, the single has gone on to earn over 130 million global streams as well as a massive 3 billion TikTok views (with 2.6 million user-created videos). Official music videos for both tracks are streaming now at YouTube HERE.
Recorded largely over the course of lockdown, In Our Own Sweet Time is fueled by old friends, new memories and finding love in a not-so-hopeless place. The eagerly awaited new album includes collaborations with hitmakers such as Little, Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges), Take a Day Trip (Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X), and more.
“I’m always drawn to the idea of timelessness or that shared moment that takes you out of the chaos outside,” Joy says. “If the world is crazy, you can retreat somewhere. It’s always hard to think of the right title but I think that sums up the album perfectly.”
Having toured the world with Taylor Swift and P!nk – and made show-stopping festival appearances at Coachella, Firefly and Austin City Limits – Joy recently made his long awaited return to North American stages with performances at BeachLife Festival and BottleRock in California.
Fresh from a sold-out date at London KOKO last month, a full scale “In Our Own Sweet Time Tour” is set to travel the globe in 2023, with complete dates to be announced soon. For updates and ticket information, please visit www.vancejoy.com/tour.
