Reinvention is a challenge for any artist, especially those who have been making music for over 30 years. But on his latest track, “Invulnerables,” Spanish rocker Enrique Bunbury embraces fresh new energy, delivering a song that pulsates with a sense of excitement and revival.
Bunbury has always been a rebel in the rock and Spanish scene, so his bold musical decisions shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. But part of what makes Invulnerables so compelling has to do with the idiosyncrasies with which it was created. In 2022, Bunbury announced he would begin his final farewell tour before retiring from music due to his health and breathing problems. However, his condition worsened during the tour, and he had to stop the tour.
In a statement, Bunbury shared that “Invulnerables” was written during the pause he took. He teamed up with seminal French-Mexican producer Adan Jodorowsky, who recently worked on Natalia Lafourcard’s album. De Todas Las Floresproduced the track in Mexico City.
The video, released Saturday, was directed by Jose Gal and Sergio Abuja. It follows a couple dancing spliced between footage of Bunbury playing the song in a room with a band. (Jodorowsky plays bass on the album as part of the band.) Both the song and the album mark another era for Bunbury, who are planning to release a new album later this year.
