“This project is built upon a love of music instilled by my family, appreciation of my culture, and the discovery of the songs and artists that first completely stirred my soul. ‘These are the songs that reside deep in my heart and continue to be a map to which I constantly return to remember who I am, where I come from, and where I am going. These songs were all recorded live, with the intention from the very beginning of performing them in a very special concert setting. Now, as we are able to start coming together again, I am incredibly excited to bring the intimacy and strong guitar driven energy of these songs directly to fans across the United States.”– Juanes

“In ‘Origen’, Juanes delivers a masterpiece… an analog… honest and exquisite album… his vulnerability and determination translate into genius and brilliance. Juanes has a spot among the legends. He walks among the greatest to give us one of the best tribute records in the history of Latin music” – Diego Ortiz, Rolling Stone Cover Q&A
“From Springsteen to Juan Luis Guerra, the Colombian rocker covers the soundtrack of his life, his way. Ranging from Mexican icon Juan Gabriel’s ‘No Tengo Dinero’ to Carlos Gardel’s ‘Volver’… done in vintage (yet subversive) style…the music is entirely Juanes’ own and everything sounds live.” – Leila Cobo, Billboard
“Juanes returns to his roots with ‘Origen,’ a covers album in which he pays tribute to the most influential artists in his life and career The album encompasses styles as diverse as tango, merengue, heavy metal, folk, reggae, vallenato, pop and, of course, rock. It includes the singles “El Amor Después Del Amor” in a rock and gospel version, and Springsteen’s classic ‘Dancing In The Dark’ in a slower folk style and in Spanish.” – Sigal Ratner, AP
“New Music Recommendations: Everybody knows Juanes… and now we can rediscover Juanes again. His new album is called ‘Origen.’ And it’s a collection of songs of artists that have influenced him. And the discovery is how vast his influences are, from Bob Marley to Carlos Gardel, the legendary tango artist from Argentina, Juan Luis Guerra from the Dominican Republic, the Mexican diva Juan Gabriel and, yes, Bruce Springsteen… with a really interesting sort of remix of The Boss. There’s [also] a great documentary on Amazon Prime on the making of the album, talking about all those influences” – Felix Contreras, NPR Music
