José González has reignited his career with his first single in five years, “El Invento.”

The musician says of the track, “every now and then I try to write lyrics in Spanish – this time I succeeded! I guess talking to [my daughter] Laura in Spanish every day helped. I started writing ‘El Invento’ around 2017 when she was born. The song is about the questions – who we are, where we’re going and why? Whom can we thank for our existence? Historically, most traditions have invented answers to these questions. Thereof the name of the song: The Invention (god).”

Some music fans may recall González’s version of The Knife’s “Heartbeats,” which has over 300 million streams on Spotify.
