José González Returns with New Song ‘El Invento’

    Swedish singer-songwriter José González has returned with his first single in over five years. It’s called ‘El Invento’ and it marks his first Spanish-language release. Check it out below.

    According to a press release, González wrote the song with help from his young daughter. “Every now and then I try to write lyrics in Spanish—this time I succeeded!” he explained. “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? Historically, most traditions have invented answers to these questions. Thereof the name of the song: The Invention (god).”

    José González released his most recent studio album, Vestiges & Claws, in 2015. He followed up it up in 2018 with a live album, Live In Europe, recorded with the String Theory orchestra.
