Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy has today announced that he will be playing two intimate shows at London’s Omeara on October 30th & 31st – tickets go on general sale Friday the 28th of July @ 9am (buy tickets here). This announcement comes off the back of the Melbourne muso releasing new track Lay It On Me. Watch the official video featuring actress Angela Sarafyan (Westworld) and directed by Mimi Cave (Sylvan Esso/tUnE-yArDs), here.
Released earlier this month, Lay It On Me marks Joy’s fist musical output since his hugely successful debut album Dream Your Life Away. Joy had this to say about the upbeat, foot thumping track:
“I had this guitar riff I had been playing for ages but had never found a home for. When it was glued together with a lyric I had in my phone, ‘everything starts at your skin,’ the song started to make sense.”
Released back in 2014, Dream Your Life Away spawned multiple hits including Fire and the Flood, Mess Is Mine, and the platinum selling single Riptide. Speaking of Riptide, the international smash hit song has sold over 1 million copies in the UK to date and has been streamed over half a billion times on Spotify alone. Along with being hugely popular, the song received critical acclaim in the form of being awarded the grand prize by the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, the judges giving the song a perfect score. Riptide also caught Taylor Swift’s attention, who invited the singer to join her on the road as her main support on her 1989 World Tour, which saw Joy playing to over 2.2 million people across 85 dates.
