Vance Joy Releases New Single: "Great Summer"

After his huge debut album, Dream Your Life Away, Vance Joy has dropped a one-of single that's set to be part of the soundtrack for the film adaptation of John Green's Paper Towns (starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne).

Straight up, I dig it. Sounding nothing like the folky balladry we've come to know from the Aussie songbird (born James Keough), "Great Summer" sounds like some expansive, early millennium Rogue Wave or Nada Surf college-rock that melodically hits all the right spots. Built off straightforward guitar lines, upbeat piano and some always-welcome xylophone twinkles, Keough's laid-back vocals are the perfect fit for this summery tale of lost love.
