Joy's debut offering has already been certified Platinum in both Australia and Canada and features a number of his hit songs such as Riptide, Mess Is Mine, Georgia and Fire & The Flood, which last week placed at #16 on the triple j Hottest 100

The album also peaked at #1 on the ARIA Albums chart upon its release in September 2014, as well as #2 on the US Billboard Top Allternative Albums chart.
