Multi-platinum singer-songwriter and overall Aussie legend, Vance Joy has revealed an intimate new cut from his forthcoming album with the release of Every Side Of You. To celebrate the arrival of his hotly-anticipated third album, In Our Own Sweet Time, the musician has announced an exclusive one off live-streamed concert on YouTube, capturing his upcoming sold-out show at Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

“I wrote this song in July 2020. I was in Melbourne and I did a song-writing session over zoom with my friend Dave Bassett. I was excited about the cruisy feeling of the guitar and the rhythm of the lyrics in the verse. My fave lines are in the second verse: ‘I don't know what tomorrow knows, where these feelings go, but I plan on being 'round, time is nothing when you look at me, can't you see this things meant to go on way past right now.’ the musician shares.

“I’ve definitely seen some changes in myself over the last few years and in more recent times. I’ve opened some doors and become more relaxed and loving. It also touches on being apart, there’s that sweetness and that tension. In music when you’re not touring, you’re there every day for six months, then you go away for eight weeks. That can be difficult.”

Working on the album during the pandemic, the musician recalled on shared experiences with friends to fuel inspiration for the album, as well as finding new love and building a life together with someone, retreating from the world to create your own realm. On Clarity, Joy teamed up with Joel Little to create a booming, dance-worthy track that will have you grooving along.

Kicking off in Darwin on September 17, Joy will return to Australian stages on his The Long Way Home Tour. The mammoth run of shows will continue on to Cairns, Brisbane, Coolangatta, Canberra, Newcastle, Lardner, Hobart, Adelaide and Bussleton before the musician takes to the Sydney Opera House Forecourt for two performances. The tour will wrap up on November 26 at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
