Joseph Share New Album Title Track The Sun

Indie pop sister trio Joseph have released an empowering new anthem The Sun, the second single and title track from their upcoming album The Sun which drops on 28th April. The new single is released alongside a music video, and tells the story of walking away from a relationship that makes you feel small, and realising you are more than you think you are.

The Sun is released on the heels of Nervous System, the band’s first single from the upcoming album that has already surpassed 1.5 million streams. In addition to a major fast selling US tour this spring and summer, the band recently announced a headline show at West London’s Bush Hall on 24th April and will also open for friend and collaborator James Bay at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall on 26th April.

Check out the Justin Frick-directed video for The Sun below:

One of the first songs recorded for The Sun, the album’s shimmering title track served as something of a sonic breakthrough for Joseph. The band took a more slowed-down, acoustic and serious version of the song out on the road, testing it for audiences while on tour with The Shins. When it came time to lay down the track, with the help of longtime producer Leggy Langdon, the song took on a more buoyant, summery and well, sunny, disposition.

Inspired by Meegan Closner’s experience in working through the lessons of a past relationship, The Sun now centres on a lush arrangement of galvanising rhythms, radiant piano tones, and gorgeously euphoric harmonies – all of which lend a profoundly triumphant spirit to the song’s statement of self-celebration (“I thought I was the light switch you turned on/But I was the Sun”).

Says Closner: “Many times I have found myself in a position where I’m stuck in cycles of negative self-talk. Times when I have seen myself as bad and struggle seeing any other possible truth. This song is my higher self speaking to that me. It’s me reminding myself that I am more than I think I am.”

That shift toward a more joyful and resplendent presentation perfectly mirrors The Sun’s underlying narrative. “The whole album is a sort of thinking through of the story that you tell about yourself, to yourself,” says Natalie Closner, “It’s about looking at whatever is diminishing you or making you believe in these limitations you’ve put on yourself, and then finally asking, ‘What if I’m more than that?’”
