(Columbia Records; New York, NY – April 30th, 2015) –  The official music video for Joy Williams’ new single, “Woman (Oh Mama),” premiered today at VEVO. Of the video, which was co-directed by Sanji and Ben Redmond, Joy comments, “So much of this music video (and the upcoming album) is about acceptance, transcendence, forgiveness and growing stronger for having stared into the darkest places within myself. That’s when the light begins to appear, the transformation. I am a universe wrapped in skin. Maybe too much skin. But I felt I needed to show who I was from the inside out. Who we all are.”

“Woman (Oh Mama)” will be featured on Joy’s highly anticipated new solo album, VENUS, which will be released midsummer on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records. Formerly a member of the four-time Grammy Award-winning duo The Civil Wars, Joy’s most recent record, 2013’s self-titled The Civil Wars, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart.

In advance of the release, Joy will perform three special shows this spring—her first official performances since November 2012—May 6 at London’s Islington Assembly Hall, May 14 at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre and May 19 at L.A.’s El Rey Theatre. Tickets are on-sale now.

Additional information surrounding the album will be announced shortly.
