“Call If You Need Me,” the fifth and final track unveiled before the Nation Of Two album release (February 23rd), is the hauntingly beautiful album opener featuring Vance Joy’s trademark visual lyrics, painting pictures of fluorescent lights and conversations through foggy shower glass. The accompanying visual, which features Vance Joy delivering an emotional performance in a beautiful, stripped-back setting, was filmed by frequent collaborator Mimi Cave, who also directed videos for the album’s first single “Lay It On Me” and the recently released “We’re Going Home.”
With still two weeks until the release of Nation of Two, the album has already amassed over 60 million global streams, accounted for by the four tracks Vance Joy has unveiled throughout the past few months.

A promising fan-favorite, the bright and uplifting “Saturday Sun” was streamed over one million times in its first five days of release, and is currently impacting alternative radio stations nationwide.
