José González announces new album Local Valley, shares new song: Listen

José González has announced his first new album in six years. Local Valley will be available through Mute on September 17th. Check out the second song from the album “Visions” below.

“We are the monkeys who are beginning to understand the universe and our place in it,” González said in a statement about the song. “We are changing our environment at an extraordinarily fast pace so that we become stewards of our planet whether we like it or not. As Stewart Brand said, “We are like gods and we have to get good at them.” The texts came to me in early February 2020 when there were more and more tweets about the possible pandemic. The subject of the song felt very timely. You can hear the birds and surrounding sounds from the porch, along with a layer of synth loops in the background. “

The Local Valley announcement follows the February release of “El Invento”, González’s first Spanish-language release and first new song in years. Local Valley has been the Swedish singer-songwriter since Vestiges & Claws 2015. This album came eight years after his previous full-length solo, In Our Nature in 2007. He also released music with the Junip project and his Live In Europe album with the String Theory Orchestra arrived in 2018.
