THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH – ‘Sagres’ – Listen

THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH - 'Sagres' - Listen

The announcement two weeks ago that The Tallest Man On Earth will release his first new album since 2012 this spring on Dead Oceans was met with open arms and eager anticipation. While the trailer is a beautiful indication of what’s to come, the first single, “Sagres,” takes us a step further into the world of Dark Bird Is Home. It’s an album that presents Kristian Mattson at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, yet also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings.

It feels fresh and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, and the lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming. You should expect the loudest and proudest songs yet from The Tallest Man On Earth on album number four, but also the softest and the lowest.

The Tallest Man On Earth’s Dark Bird Is Home is out May 11th on Dead Oceans and available for pre-order now. All iTunes and SC Distribution pre-orders come with an instant free download of “Sagres.”

For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time The Man is bringing a band to the stage with him. All dates are below.
