Swedish folksinger Kristian Matsson, known to most of us as the Tallest Man On Earth, has a new album called Dark Bird Is Home coming out next month, and we’ve already heard the early single “Sagres.” The album’s title track, the second song we’ve heard from the LP, starts out as a lovely, spindly, conversational acoustic song. Before long, though, it swells up into something grand and orchestral. The moment the strings and horns come in is a total knockout. Check the song out below.
Dark Bird Is Home is out 5/12 on Dead Oceans.
