New single from José González “Leaf Off/The Cave”
José González is releasing the single ”Leaf Off/The Cave” off the upcoming album ”Vestiges & Claws” which will be released February 17, 2015.
This Saturday ”Leaf Off/The Cave” had its world premiere at the P3 Guld Awards in Gothenburg, Sweden.
This is what José has to say about his new album:
“I started out thinking that I wanted to continue in the same minimalistic style as on my two previous records,” says José. “But once I started the actual recordings I soon realized that most of the songs turned out better with added guitars and a more beat-like percussion, and with more backing vocals. Personally, I think this made it a more interesting and varied album.”
The result is less purist, less strict. One can find traces of inspired protest songs and eccentric folk rock here. Monotonous grooves and rhythms. Frustration and optimism. It’s a collection that is simultaneously confident, free and tentative.
”Leaf Off/The Cave” is released January 20.
