Vance Joy is a multi-platinum singer-songwriter who has just announced that he will be dropping his brand-new album, “In Our Own Sweet Time” on the 10th of June! He’s already given us a snippet into what’s to come in his new single “Clarity.”
Like several other artists, Vance Joy created “In Our Own Sweet Time” during his time during the pandemic. He classes this collection of music to be his most personal project yet. The music from the album is inspired by old friends, ew memories and finding love. He worked alongside some fantastic collaborators for the album including oel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift), Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges), Take a Day Trip (Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X) and plus many more.
When talking about “In Our Own Sweet Time,” the singer explains;
“I’m always drawn to the idea of timelessness or that shared moment that takes you out of the chaos outside. 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.”
“Clarity” is the next single to be released from the album and it has an upbeat, feel-good sound that is perfect to listen to when you’re chilling with friends, or even just in your own company. The beat is simply infectious, alongside catchy lyrics that will refuse to leave your head. The album will also include previous hits “Don’t Fade” and “Missing Piece.” A music video was also dropped alongside the release and can be viewed below;
He shares further;
“It’s very upbeat and poppy. Dan Wilson says if there is a song you might be a bit shy about because it feels poppy or makes you feel uncomfortable because it’s saying something really directly that’s probably the single. I got that feeling from ‘Clarity.’ When we finished the song Joel said he could imagine the feel of the production – when he sent it back to me, with the full production, it just exploded. I didn’t see that coming. The original voice memo was me doing mouth trumpet. He even sampled my weak mouth trumpet in the original demo, then that got replaced with the real thing.”
