Glimpse of Us


Album Glimpse of Us (Single)

Glimpse of Us” is Japanese singer, songwriter and musician Joji’s first release since 2020. Released on the 10th June 2022, the piano ballad has caught the world by storm with its melancholy melody and its vulnerable and raw lyrics.

The song sees Joji speak of heartbreak – not a theme uncommon to the singer, but takes it to a whole new level. “Glimpse of Us” sees Joji reminisce and pine for a past relationship despite being in one. He recounts the connection in his past relationship and admits that he will never have a connection like that again.

The music video was directed by Dan Streit and uploaded to Joji’s official YouTube channel on the 10th June 2022. The video shows a group of anonymous people causing trouble – excessively drinking, speeding in their cars and publicly urinating in some cases. As of the 7th July 2022, the video had a total of 21.1 million views.
