Vance Joy Announces New Single “Lay It On Me”
The last time we heard from Vance Joy was way back in 2015 when the Aussie singer/songwriter dropped “Fire And The Flood” from a rerelease of his debut LP, Dream Your Life Away. Happily, he returns later this week (on July 13, to be specific) with a new tune. “Hey guys I’m very excited to say I’ve got some new music coming out, a song called ‘Lay It On Me,” the curly-haired crooner revealed in an Instagram video. “Triple J are going to be premiering it on Thursday morning and I really hope you like it. Catch you soon.”
The 29-year-old then shared the cover art, which finds him locked in an embrace with a mystery woman. It will be interesting to see if he sticks with the stripped-back, folky approach of breakthrough hit “Riptide” or broadens his sonic horizons. That simple ditty was a multi-platinum smash at home and caught fire in Europe — cracking the top 10 in Germany, Austria, Ireland and the UK. It was just as popular stateside, climbing all the way into the top 30 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. See his announcement video below.
