20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition!
Numbered, Limited Edition Clear Vinyl - 3,800 Copies for North America!

Mute is excited to announce the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of José González's seminal debut album Veneer, out October 27th on limited edition clear vinyl.

Featuring newly remastered audio and a previously unreleased bonus LP comprising 13 intimate live recordings from the Swedish Grammy winner's legendary 2003 performance at Gothenburg Concert Hall in Sweden. This special deluxe edition is packaged in a numbered gatefold jacket, includes printed inner sleeves and an extensive 24-page booklet featuring exclusive photos, illustrations, essays and a track by track guide from José. Limited to 3800 copies for North America.

José González has tallied over 1 billion streams and has sold over 1 million copies of Veneer to date. The record introduced the world to the Argentine-Swedish singer-songwriter's unique blend of intricate guitar work and introspective songwriting. It includes the hit track "Heartbeats" which was famously featured in an award-winning commercial for the Sony BRAVIA TV.

Recorded in González's cramped Gothenburg apartment with just a four-track recorder and, later, a computer and Cubase, Veneer in fact probably couldn't have been any more honest or uncompromising. Two decades later, Veneer remains utterly exceptional, from its hushed opener, "Slow Moves," to its fragile closer, "Broken Arrows," with the likes of the mesmerizing "Crosses," the spellbinding "Deadweight On Velveteen" (his first single, released in 2000) and the rhythmically entrancing "Lovestain" still as timeless as they were 20 years ago.

González's sparse recordings showcase hushed, double-tracked vocals, haunted imagery, and a clearly gifted classical guitarist.
Veneer succeeds in the simplicity of its songs... it's an album to accompany rain and gray skies, and is a testament to the timeless nature of just a man and his guitar.
-American Songwriter
Veneer displays an intense yet hushed talent, equally in thrall to the floating drone of post rock as to the elegant finger picking of Bert Jansch...
-Time Out London
