Listen: The Tallest Man On Earth Releases “Sagres”

Kristian Matsson takes his sound in a whole new instrumental direction

Singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, or The Tallest Man On Earth, returns with the follow-up to 2012’s There’s No Leaving Now. His upcoming album, Dark Bird Is Home, will be released May 12, and he just released the first single, “Sagres”.

The melodic track features percussion and a six-string sound, straying from Matsson’s usual tendency to spotlight his own guitar work. The laid back track sees The Tallest Man On Earth show off his higher vocal range with an upbeat mix of instruments, a complete departure from his earlier, simpler sound.
