Jarabe de Palo is back…
The Barcelona band, known for its laid back bluesy rock sound, has released the official music video for “Hoy No Soy Yo.”
It’s the first single from Jarabe de Palo’s new album, arriving February 18 on Nacional Records.
In addition to the album, the band is launching a cross-country U.S. tour starting on March 15 at New York’s B.B. King Blues Club.
Recalling past songs like its early hit “Depende,” the band’s leader Pau Donés engages in some everyday existentialism in the catchy new track. The video, which had its premiere on Billboard.com, translates Donés’ search for self-identity into images of street fashion.
Jarabe de Palo, whose name is a Spanish expression for corporal punishment, first gained popularity and radio airplay in the mid-90s in Spain and Latin America with “La Flaca,” the title track of the group’s first album, and it remains a Latin alternative classic. A remake of the song from Carlos Santana‘s new album, featuring Juanes, was released in December. The single debuted at No. 7 on the Latin Digital Songs chart.
