Today José González kicks off his sold out North American tour. The tour is in support of González’s Vestiges & Claws, his first album in seven years. He plays the Imperial in Vancouver on April 25.

González produced Vestiges & Claws in his home as well as Svenska Grammofonstudion, both in Gothenburg. This is the first album where the singer includes only original material — years’ worth of songs — that revolve largely around ideas of civilization, humanism and solidarity. “I think that might be where there is some sort of common thread on this new record: The zoomed out eye on humanity on a small pale blue dot in a cold, sparse and unfriendly space,” says González. “The amazing fact that we are here at all, an aim to encourage us to understand ourselves and to make the best of the one life we know we have — after birth and before death. And also, I’ve been okay with using rhymes this time,” he adds. “In general I think that the lyrics are clearer this time. And a little less self-pitying.”

Iceland’s singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Ólöf Arnalds, will be the support act for the entire tour.
