Jose Gonzalez
This year’s CMJ Music Marathon featured an advance screening of the Ben Stiller-directed film, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. A few songs on the movie’s soundtrack come from smooth-voxed José González (who moonlights as one third of Junip), and one of those songs is Stay Alive. It was written by Ryan Adams, but it’s still got that earth-toned ethereality González has made his signature sound.
Directed by Emmett Malloy, the video for the track features González walking solemnly around an office building, sometimes looking at photos of Ben Stiller and presumably attempting to decode his secret life. Check it out below.
