JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SONG 'SWING'
NEW SINGLE JOINED BY OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE VIA TIKTOK LIVESTREAM NOW
José González has today shared the video for 'Swing'. The joyous new track is joined by an official music video, directed by longtime visual collaborator Mikel Cee Karlsson (Fever Ray, Junip). The video saw its premiere earlier today via a TikTok livestream livestream using the official hashtag #SwingYourBody, with the intention to inspire self-love, body positivity, confidence and personal empowerment.
José says of the track: "'Swing’ is a song with (almost) only good vibes! It was musically inspired by high-life from West Africa and Caribbean music. With its layered light guitars and a melodic bass line on top of a beat from a drum machine app, 'Swing' is a song about dancing and following your natural impulses"
Video director Karlsson says: "I was thinking of ideas for ‘Swing’ when I stumbled upon a scientific paper that focused on the behavioral patterns of birds and their movements in the sky. I found the natural choreography of the birds really beautiful. Like a form of dance, shaped for survival.
