The Tallest Man On Earth Announces New Album Dark Bird Is Home

“This is not the end, this is fine,” Kristian Matsson declares in the trailer for today’s announcement of his new album as The Tallest Man On Earth, Dark Bird Is Home. While “fine” is often used as a signifier of the mediocre, Matsson’s intonation suggests that fine has become the summation of living in the moment for him, the opposite of worrying about when the inevitable end will come. I can only guess this is the sentiment that will pervade Dark Bird Is Home, which is Matsson’s fourth record and will be out 5/12. No single yet, but you can check out the cover art above and stream a brief, nature-heavy trailer plus the tracklist below.
