Vance Joy releases new song ‘Missing Piece’

Much-loved Melbourne singer-songwriter Vance Joy returns with his rousing new single, ‘Missing Piece’.

‘Missing Piece’ is the first taste of new music from Vance Joy in three years, and follows on from his recent collaboration with fellow superstars Benny Blanco and Marshmello on ‘You’. Written virtually during a COVID lockdown with Joel Little (Taylor Swift, Khalid, Lorde), ‘Missing Piece’ was inspired by people all over the globe being separated from their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic and is a song for our times.

“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.

“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.”

‘Missing Piece’ arrives with a charming, playful video from Melbourne based director Annelise Hickey and sees Vance Joy’s love going to extreme lengths to deliver him his forgotten lunch.

One of Australia’s finest contemporary singer-songwriters, Vance Joy has two #1 Australian albums to his name, 2014’s dream your life away and 2018’s Nation of Two. He has been the recipient of two ARIA awards (Best Male and Best Adult Contemporary Album) and nine of his songs are now ARIA-certified platinum or multi-platinum, including his breakout single ‘Riptide’, which is currently 12 x platinum.

With over 3.1 billion streams to his name, Vance Joy’s story is equally as impressive globally. Nation of Two cracked the Top 10 of Billboard’s ‘200’ Albums Chart on release and was #2 in Canada. His songs have topped the Alt Radio and Triple A Charts in the US time and time again, and in a pre-COVID era he graced a swag of UK and US TV shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Myers, Jools Holland, The Today Show and Good Morning America.

His affable charm and unassuming talent have won hearts around the map and saw him perform 83 dates on his Nation of Two Tour, with performances at dream venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, Budweiser Stage in Toronto and Rod Laver Arena in his hometown of Melbourne. He has played festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Splendour in the Grass and also toured stadiums around the world in direct support of pop powerhouses Taylor Swift and P!NK.

‘Missing Piece’ is the glowing next installment of Vance Joy’s story and the first taste of much more music to come.
