José González announces first album in seven years

It was 2007 that we last had a full-length from Swedish-born singer-songwriter José González, but the wait is finally over as he has now announced his third album, due out next year.

The new record 'Vestiges & Claws' has been produced by González himself and recorded mostly in his home town of Gothenburg.

Speaking about the new record, he 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.”

'Vestiges & Claws' is due out on the 16th February via Peacefrog, and you can watch the trailer for the new record and see the full tracklist below.

'Vestiges & Claws' Tracklist:
1. With The Ink Of A Ghost
2. Let It Carry You
3. Stories We Build
4. Stories We Tell
5. The Forest
6. Leaf Off
7. The Cave
8. Every Age
9. What Will
10. Vissel
11. Afterglow
12. Open Book
