The king of Aussie indie-pop is back! Vance Joy has unveiled his heartwarming new single, Missing Piece, landing with an even more charming visual. The release serves as the first taste of new music from the musician in three years.
Written with Joel Little (Taylor Swift, Khalid, Lorde), the songs conceptual nature was inspired the separation from loved ones that many found themselves experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bringing his signature lyrical mastery to the track, Missing Piece is an uplifting moment, full of warmth and love. The musicians captivating vocals ring throughout the track, with building to an epic final chorus.
“Missing Piece is a song about being separated from someone you love. It can be tough but when what you have is good you know that these separations are just small stuff; you’re both holding the line. It’s about the stillness you find when you are together. the musician shares. “I wrote it with Joel Little on a zoom call. I’m a big fan of his great songwriting and production. I think we tapped into something that’s relatable given so many people around the world have been separated recently due to restricted travel.”
Directed by Annelise Hickey, the songs playful visual is a wholesome treat, as we follow Charly Thorn following the singer around town, after he leaves his sandwich at home. So. Darn. Wholesome.
