Vance Joy gives P!nk’s ‘What About Us’ the acoustic treatment

Vance Joy is about to hit the road for an extensive summer tour, but before he does, he’s giving his fans a little surprise. On Thursday (May 30), the Australian singer unveiled his cover of soon-to-be-tour-mate P!nk’s hit song “What About Us.” Instead of the up-tempo and boppy song featured on the pop star’s 2017 release Beautiful Trauma, Joy went another direction by giving the tune an acoustic spin.

Listen to Joy’s cover of “What About Us” above.

Next month, the musician will join P!nk on her summertime European stadium tour. The upcoming trek will find the artists performing at venues across Europe during June, July, and August.

The trek will include stops in Liverpool, Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich, and Stockholm. In addition to those dates, the tour will also feature several two-night engagements in major cities including Glasgow (June 22 and 22), London (June 29 and 30), Cologne (July 5 and 6), and Munich (July 26 and 27).

The 28-stop tour begins on June 16 at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam and concludes almost two months later on Aug. 11 at the Malieveld in the Netherlands.

The upcoming tour is in support of Joy’s sophomore effort, 2018’s Nation of Two. The record features two current radio hits “Saturday Sun” and “Lay it on Me” which he named his 2017 tour after.

Joy’s “Lay it on Me” 2017 United States-centric headlining tour sold out immediately after going on sale. Last year’s Nation of Two World Tour found the musician performing at several world-renowned venues even selling out the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
