Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Vance Joy has today released a stunning acoustic cover of P!nk’s “What About Us”. The rework comes ahead of P!nk’s European summer stadium tour, on which he will serve as direct support. The tour kicks off on June 16th at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff Arena, making stops throughout the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark before wrapping things up back in the Netherlands in The Hague (full itinerary below).
The last few years have been massive for Vance Joy, with his sophomore album “Nation of Two” amassing over 500 million streams and winning an ARIA Music Award (Australian Recording Industry Association) in 2018 for Best Adult Contemporary Album. His 2017 Lay It On Me US headline tour sold out immediately upon going on sale, after selling out legs in Australia, England, and Canada. Last year’s Nation of Two World Tour included stops at world-renowned venues, including an incredible sold-out performance at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre – released as a live vinyl recording late last year.
Nation of Two – which includes the hit singles, “Lay It On Me” and “Saturday Sun” – earned widespread critical applause around the world. “Joy focused on crafting piercing vignettes of young love and emotional restlessness -- and the results absolutely thrill,” raved Entertainment Weekly. “It all adds up to an appealing album from an artist with a promising future,” wrote Associated Press. “This is (Vance Joy’s) time to really shine – and he seizes it.” The album marked the follow-up to Vance Joy’s RIAA platinum certified worldwide breakthrough album, dream your life away (2014).
