I was really excited to see José González’s name pop up recently on the announcement of his new album “Vestiges & Claws”, upcoming tourdates and our first listen to a song off the record (“Every Age”). I’m just surprised its taken me this long to get something up on the site….
“Vestiges & Claws”, his first album in seven years, will be released on February 17, 2015 and was produced by González in his home as well as Svenska Grammofonstudion, both in Gothenburg, Sweden. It consists of years’ worth of musical sketches; an album that is less purist, less strict and a “collection that is simultaneously confident, free and uncertain”. González revealed the first single and video from the album titled “Every Age.”, featuring a balloon’s-eye-view of this world we live in.
Take a look.
