Joji announces North American tour, shares “Glimpse of Us” Forrest Grenfell

For a consummate multi-hyphenate, Japanese-Australian singer-songwriter-rapper-comedian-YouTuber George Kusunoki Miller (Joji) has been relatively quiet these past two years. From the release of his September 2020 sophomore LP Nectar till today, he hadn’t dropped a single song. But now, he’s broken his musical silence, sharing a new track titled “Glimpse of Us” and its Dan Streit-directed video. Along with the song and short film, Miller has revealed 17 scheduled fall North American concert dates. The SMITHEREENS tour starts at Palo Alto’s Frost Amphitheater on September 1 and takes a winding route across the continent before finishing at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta on October 20.


“Glimpse of Us” is a quiet, pretty piano ballad that shows off Miller’s quivering counter-tenor and soaring falsetto. It’s a lovely tune that differs dramatically from Streit’s deeply disturbing visual treatment, which details a day in the life of a masked man in a derelict exurb as he fights, shoots automatic weapons, lights fireworks, urinates, and spirals. Watch it below and view Joji’s upcoming tour dates below.
