“I just wanted a solid second album… more songs I’m proud of. It’s a luxury to have made one album and it’s nice to know people are waiting to hear some new songs.”

It is with much pride that Liberation Records release Vance Joy’s sophomore album, Nation of Two – an exquisite collection of thirteen songs that highlight the Melbourne musician’s evocative story-telling and compelling vocals.

Featuring the singles ‘Lay It On Me’ and ‘We’re Going Home’, instant classic ‘Saturday Sun’, plus fan favourites ‘Like Gold’ and ‘Call If You Need Me’ – each with accompanying videos – Nation of Two was crowned this week’s triple j feature album, with praise for the record already flowing in from around the globe:
