In this episode, the final episode of 2021, we get to meet singer/songwriter José González. Speaking with me from his home in Sweden a couple days before the release of his newest record, Local Valley, José and I chat about the album and his excitement about touring. We discuss the themes and sonic risks he took this time around, including the sounds from around the globe that influenced the album. We talk about his first-ever use of Swedish and Spanish on an album, as well as his famous covers, and more. Please enjoy, and thank you for listening.
