Busy at work with his band Junip, Swedish singer-songwriter José González has not had that much time to work on solo material. However after seven years he is finally ready to release a brand new album titled, Vestiges & Claws. The album is set to be released on February 17th and will be his third album as well as the follow up to his 2007 record In Our Nature.

The whole entire album was self-produced and recorded in his kitchen in Gothenburg, Sweden. In a statement, he said, “It was no doubt a conscious decision to work without a producer. I didn’t want this to be too polished, or too ‘in your face.’ Most of all, it’s fun to be in complete control of the artistic aspect.” He continued, “Sometimes people complain that my music is too muddled, but I really do not want a modern crisp sound. I’d much rather aim somewhere between Shuggie Otis and Simon & Garfunkel.”
