It’s all happening in the world of Vance Joy, with a new album due in a couple of weeks, a new song let loose and worldwide tour dates aplenty just announced.

Nation of Two is the name of the new album, and it will hit on February 23. Its opening track, Call If You Need Me, is right here…

Now, to the Nation of Two world tour. Vance will be hitting the US and Canada, before popping home for some newly-announced dates. Then he’s off again, to New Zealand, South America and Europe. What a busy boy!

We won’t bore you with the international dates, but the local ones are sure to appeal, so here they are…

If you’re super-keen and want to get in on pre-sales, there are two. The Vance Joy pre-sale will be here, starting Monday, February 19 at 2pm (AEDT) and ending 24 hours later (unless the allocation sells out).

There will also be a Frontier members pre-sale here, starting the very same time that the one above ends, which is Tuesday, February 20 at 2pm (AEDT). It will end exactly 24 hours later – unless, once again, the allocation sells out beforehand.

If you just wish to do the general public thing, those tix go on sale at 10am local time on Friday, February 23.

Pre-order Nation of Two at JB Hi-Fi before 11.59pm this Thursday (February 15) and secure your chance to WIN access to an intimate release day party with Vance Joy in Sydney. Meanwhile all online pre-orders come with a CD slick card signed by Vance – being the star that he is he actually braves a potential bout of writer’s cramp and signs it himself, rather than it just being printed.
