Vance Joy, who’s known for his emotive uplifting indie folk music, has returned with a long-awaited single “Missing Piece.” The track billows with grace making it a tender love song for the summer.
The song is about long-distance relationships. Written in isolation, Vance says that it’s “about missing someone you love,” adding:
“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.”
The track arrives with a charming video that sees Vance Joy’s lover go to crazy lengths to deliver his forgotten lunch.
