New York, NY (Top40 Charts) José González & The String Theory has officially announced the release of Live In Europe, an extraordinary two-LP live recording from recent European tour with maverick orchestra The String Theory. Live In Europe is available now for pre-order exclusively via PledgeMusic. A wide range of exclusives are on offer, including 140g and 180g double vinyl, a 24-page booklet featuring rare and behind-the-scenes photos from the tour, a limited edition 7-inch single, a unique poster and T-shirt options, guitar strings, and much more. Each order comes with an Instant Grat download of the song "Crosses." Delivery of the Pledge pre-order will be in the winter. A digital version will be released in the spring. Due to a copyright dispute this album and offer is currently not available for customers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Live In Europe was recorded last year during González and The String Theory's acclaimed collaborative tour, their second following a remarkable 2011 tour that earned them thunderous applause from across the continent.

González's partnership with the Orchestra began in 2009 during an interdisciplinary recording workshop at the Kokokaka film studio in the singer-songwriter-guitarist's hometown Gothenburg, Sweden. Their debut live performance at Gothenburg Concert Hall in April 2010 gained high critical acclaim - prompting comparisons with Krzysztof Penderecki, Arnold Schönberg, and Nico Muhly - and proved the starting point of a remarkable long-term relationship between kindred artistic souls.

The 2017 tour made sold out stops in historic theaters and concert halls across Europe, spanning Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Lithuania, Finland, France, Poland and The United States. The performances included stirringly original renditions of songs originally found on González's three celebrated solo albums: 2003's breakthrough debut VENEER, 2007's IN OUR NATURE, and 2015's VESTIGES & CLAWS, the latter of which saw González finding new inspiration in sprawling 70's Brazilian productions, American folk rock, and West African desert blues. Among The String Theories myriad highlights are new visions of such classic songs as "Crosses," "Down The Line," "Every Age," and "Let It Carry You," as well has remarkable new renditions of González's already unique versions of "Heartbeats" (written by The Knife) and Massive Attack's "Teardrop."
