Open Book – Jose Gonzalez

We've a great twist on the latest Jose Gonzalez single 'Open Book' today. This version is recorded with NYC's yMusic and will be available as a b-side on the 8th June release.

There’s been much talk of José González’s video for his latest single ‘Open Book’ and it’s rather unsettling video directed by Mikel Cee Karlsson. José had this to say about it:

In this video I’m attached to a thing, a big worm-like part of me that needs me more than I need it. It’s a humorous but still poetic twist on the theme of the album – ‘Vestiges & Claws’ and of the song – ‘Open Book’, regarding relationships.

This stunning variation of the ‘Open Book’ single features orchestral accompaniment by yMusic. They’re a New York City based chamber sextet who bridge the gap between pop and classical music. If you enjoy this version as much as we do, you’ll be pleased to know it will be available on 8th June 2015 as the B-side to the album version. You can buy ‘Vestiges & Claws’ on the Peacefrog label now from all good retailers.
