About the artist
Kristian Matsson is a singer-songwriter from Dalarna, Sweden who performs under the stage name of The Tallest Man on Earth. Since 2006, he has released three full-length albums and two EPs. Mattson is known for recording and producing his own records in whichever home he is currently living and states that the connection between his voice and guitar is so strong, he rarely records them as separately tracked performances. On February 10, 2015, Dead Oceans - the label to which Mattson is signed announced that a fourth LP - "Dark Bird is Home" will be released on May 12, 2015. The tracks featured on the new album were reportedly written and recorded by Mattson whilst travelling since his last release in 2012. Dark Bird is Home is anticipated to be Mattson at his most personal and direct, with the album said to carry a "weather worn" weight to them. He is also known both by critics and his fans for his charismatic stage presence.
