New José González Single: "Every Age"

On this particularly sunny autumn morning, I can't think of anything I want to listen to more than a new José González song.

Another one of his perfectly spare acoustic odes, "Every Age" is an existential lesson made more beautiful when delivered by Gonzalez. Along with the slow, echoey thump of his strings, Gonzalez's famously hushed vocals chant things like: "Every branch of the tree has to learn to grow/ find its way/ make the best of this short-lived stage... Take your time/ build a home/ build a place where we all belong." Leave it to José to make you contemplate your world on a Wednesday.

González's brand new solo album, Vestiges And Claws, is set to release on February 17.
