Fabricado, editado y distribuido por Warner Music Spain S. He is an intense, questioning, mercurial artist who has always followed a labyrinthine musical path that has astonished -- and occasionally bewildered -- fans, but has gained him legions of them across Latin America, Mexico, Europe, and the United States.
Bunbury is capable of using an authoritative command of Middle Eastern, cabaret, ranchera, blues, flamenco, tango, salsa, milonga, bolero, cumbia, electro, roots and garage rock, heavy metal, and even electro musics to get his songs across.
The second notion was that change itself is a primary engine of creativity. The group's pop debut, El Mar No Cesa, appeared in It hit number 56 on the Spanish chart and received solid airplay. Paired with an electrifying live show, each of the band's recordings subsequent to their debut went to the top of the Spanish charts and entered the Top Five in other European countries as well.
For his part, Bunbury grew not only as a singer, refining his style and stage persona, but as an exceptional lyricist. The band split in , though they have made several live reunion records since.
The artist was undaunted. Songs like "Infinito" and "El Viento a Favor" opened doors to new audiences. He released the studio album Flamingos in which, like its predecessors, offered a change in direction as it placed his songwriting style and genre assimilations in a harder-edged context that embraced heavy metal.
While Bunbury's tours were more often than not sold-out affairs, and he received ample radio play and YouTube views, the charts were not yet forgiving. The year was hectic.
They delivered a provocative, literary, and artful self-titled recording. Bunbury also worked on his own music, issuing the double-length studio album El Viaje a Ninguna Parte. The recording wed the artist's songwriting skills to Pan-American sounds from Argentina to New Orleans, embodying jazz, cumbia, tango, and Brazilian music.
It charted at number 39 in Spain. The album went to number three in Spain, and Bunbury was back on top. After leaving the road for a time, Bunbury reexamined his direction yet again.
He focused on American-style folk, rock, and early psychedelia as he and Vegas collaborated to release the song double set El Tiempo de Las Cerezas in Its command is total, the collaboration seamless, and it remains one of the most underrated offerings in either's catalog.
An audio-video testimonial album, Tour , was issued and hit number one in Spain and Mexico. A year later, a documentary photo book titled Tesoro was published, featuring the work of widely celebrated Spanish art and rock photographer Jose Girl.
It achieved gold status in Spain and hit the top spot on the country's album charts. Its popularity ensured a transatlantic tour that found the artist playing bigger venues to abundant, enthusiastic crowds.
Hellville de Luxe was the beginning of a new chart era for Bunbury -- though he was unfazed by it. Instead of following suit with another album in the same manner, Bunbury again changed focus to reveal his intimate troubadour side on 's Las Consecuencias. Bunbury and his band often played for tiny audiences as he tried -- and succeeded -- in building new touring markets the old-fashioned way, which took him far outside of major American coastal cities and into the nation's interior to places like Detroit and Salt Lake City.
In the midst of it all, he moved to Los Angeles.
He was splitting his time between living in the U. It was released in and hit number one on the Spanish charts. Bunbury's fevered pace and chameleon-like changes continued on 's Licenciado Cantinas.
Bunbury utilized these classic songs and forms as he would his own: A short film, Licenciado Cantinas: The Movie, was directed by Alexis Morante and released as part of a special-edition box set. It reached number two. A live album, De Cantina en Cantina: On Stage , was also released. In , the artist transformed yet again. In a letter to fans in advance of the album's late-in-the-year release, he wrote that it was not "a compilation album of great successes," and did not represent his catalog evenly.
Instead, it offered a chance to revisit songs he hadn't thought about in many years: The album placed at number ten on Billboard's Hot Latin Albums chart. In November, he released two multi-volume compilation albums covering some 20 years. In September of , Bunbury announced the studio album Expectativas with a minute film on its creation directed by iconic photographer and his life partner Jose Girl.
Expectativas was issued in late October.
