Joji has released his new single, Glimpse Of Us, and it's a haunting piano-driven ballad that sees Joji comparing his current relationship to one from his past. His vocals are the main focus on Glimpse Of Us, and the result is one of the most powerful songs in his discography to date.
Glimpse Of Us' lyrics are potent, containing questions like "Why then, if she's so perfect/Do I still wish that it was you?" and "Is this a part of your story?/One that I had never lived". It's Joji's first release since 2020's Nectar, and this one's going to bring back a lot of memories for listeners everywhere.
Joji's vocals on Glimpse Of Us are tender and fragile. The track is an exploration of the situation he's in, and the song's piano line underscores one of his finest vocal performances to date. The song is laden with melancholy, and there's no two ways about it. If you've been in a similar situation to Joji, then this one will hurt.
The Dan Streit-directed music video for the song features scenes of utter chaos, with a masked man at the centre of the debauchery. It's at odds with the poignant beauty that's present within the song, but in some ways, it channels the whirlwind of emotions that love can cause. No two people manage their feelings in the same way.
