Joji is back with his first taste of music in two years. On his new single, “Glimpse Of Us,” sings of heartbreak over a stripped, lovelorn piano.
While known for singing over electronic beats, Joji is able to showcase some of the best vocals of his career singing over live instrumentation.
“Sometimes I look in her eyes / And that’s where I find a glimpse of us,” he sings on the song’s chorus. “And I try to fall for her touch / But I’m thinkin’ of the way it was.”
The song’s video, directed by Dan Streit, consists of found footage, capturing a day of property destruction, explosions, public urination, and overall chaos.
In addition to new music, Joji has also announced his Smithereens tour, which will take place across various US cities and Canada this fall.
