Listen to Julieta Venegas' New Single 'Ese Camino'
Julieta Venegas is back! The Latin Grammy winning singer-songwriter has unveiled the lyric video for her new single, “Ese Camino” (That Journey).
The uptempo track, which kicks off with a lively accordion and carries that signature Mexican sound present in most of Venegas’ music, is the first taste of her upcoming album, Algo Sucede, due out August 14.
“I wrote ‘Ese Camino’ inspired by the concept of childhood,” said Venegas, 44, in a statement. “About how, even though we become separated from it, when we grow up and become adults, there are still remnants there of what we were. Maybe they’re not so much concrete memories as they are fears, desires, aromas, those feelings that have less to do with what’s rational and more to do with emotion and the senses. Our childhood shapes us for life; we all go through that journey. And what lives on forever within us is that innocence, freshness, vulnerability, and the bliss of having been children.”
The single's cover art shows Venegas, herself a mom to a 4-year-old named Simona, riding a tricycle as a young girl.

Algo Sucede is Venegas’ seventh studio album, a followup to 2013’s Los Momentos.
Venegas is already gearing up for a world tour in support of the album, having just returned from Los 40 Principales music festival in Bogotá, Colombia, where she shared the stage with Jorge Villamizar and Fonseca, among other Latin acts.
