José González has announced a new live album, José González & The String Theory: Live In Europe, which will be released digitally on February 22nd

Along with the album announcement, González has shared a video of him and The String Theory performing Leaf Off / The Cave in Hamburg, Germany. Watch below for a taste of what to expect when González and The String Theory bring their collaborative tour to North America and Europe…

José González & The String Theory: Live In Europe was recorded during their sold-out 2018 European tour and features stirringly original renditions of songs taken from González’s three celebrated solo albums: 2003’s breakthrough debut Veneer, 2007’s In Our Nature, and 2015’s Vestiges & Claws. Among numerous highlights found on the record, fans are treated to new visions of González’s classic songs such as Crosses, Down The Line, Every Age, and Let It Carry You, as well as remarkable reworkings of his versions of The Knife’s Heartbeats and Massive Attack’s Teardrop

The String Theory is a Berlin and Gothenburg-based artist collective, think tank, and experimental chamber orchestra that explores the outskirts of contemporary classical music, electro, noise, Neue Musik and pop by means of workshops, studio recordings, and live performances

González’s partnership with P.C. Nacht, the Musical Director and Conductor of The String Theory, began in 2009. During an interdisciplinary recording workshop in the singer-songwriter-guitarist’s hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden, they recorded a version of González’s Cycling Trivialities. Their debut live performance under the name The Gothenberg String Theory at Gothenburg Concert Hall in April 2010 gained high critical acclaim, prompting comparisons to Krzysztof Penderecki, Arnold Schönberg, and Nico Muhly
