José González announces Vestiges & Claws, his first new album in seven years

Swedish singer-songwriter José González has announced that he will release Vestiges & Claws, his first new album in seven years, in February of next year. 

The singer will put out his third album out February 16th next year, it is his first LP since 2007's In Our Nature. You can see a trailer for the album below. 

Speaking about the album, the singer said: "There were a couple of things that enabled me to complete this record: one was curiosity, to be able to play percussion and do a lot of harmonies and also to produce and mix the album; the other was aesthetics. I love to listen to Arthur Russell and Shuggie Otis, to music that has been done mostly by one person in their solitary state.”

He continued: "This album is a zoomed-out eye on humanity on a small, pale blue dot in a cold, sparse and unfriendly space. The amazing fact that we are all here, an attempt at encouraging us to understand ourselves and to make the best of the one life we know we have – after birth and before death.”

 

The tracklisting for Vestiges & Claws is as follows:

'With The Ink Of A Ghost'

'Let It Carry You'

'Stories We Build. Stories We Tell'

'The Forest'

'Leaf Off'

'The Cave'

'Every Age'
