Published Aug 16, 2007If you've ever seen Swedish songsmith José González live you're familiar with his ability to transform cover versions into his own sublime works of art. Next to his career-making rendition of the Knife's "Heartbeats," González's best known cover is Massive Attack's "Teardrop," where he completely strips the song down to its skeleton, using his delicate voice and acoustic guitar combo to carry Liz Fraser's heartfelt words.
Now González has made the song available for free download, via the website of his UK publicists, Bang On PR.
González is scheduled to release In Our Nature, his long-awaited follow-up to 2005's Veneer, on September 25 through Mute.
