Published Jun 15, 2016Earlier this spring, the Swedish songsmith the Tallest Man on Earth revealed a new short film, along with the announcement of an upcoming string of summer tour dates. Before he embarks on the next leg of the trek, the singer born Kristian Matsson has debuted some new material.
Following up last year's Dark Bird Is Home LP, he's shared a new single titled "Time of the Blue." According to a press release, the track marks "a complete reset to a place where just one simple thing is placed under the spotlight — the song itself."
Intricate acoustic guitar mingles with Matsson's soft, emotive vocals across the twangy melancholic number. As was the artist's intention, you can scroll past the Tallest Man on Earth's upcoming live shows and let the song speak for itself in the player below.
Down below you'll also find an accompanying video to the new track, courtesy of director Rolf Nylinder.
