Argentinian-Swedish singer-songwriter José González has made his return with his first new song in 6 years, “El Invento.” An accompanying music video, directed by Mikel Cee Karlsson, has also been released.
His first Spanish-language release, the song features his usual gentle, acoustic sound. According to a press release, González wrote the lyrics with help from his young daughter.
“Every now and then I try to write lyrics in Spanish—this time I succeeded!” González said. “I guess talking to Laura in Spanish every day helped. I started writing ‘El Invento’ around 2017 when she was born. The song is about the questions—who we are, where we’re going and why? Whom can we thank for our existence?”
González's most recent releases include 2015's Vestiges & Claws and his 2019 live album with the String Theory orchestra, Live In Europe.
