Listen: The Tallest Man on Earth Shares “Time of the Blue”

"A complete reset to a place where just one simple thing is placed under the spotlight — the song itself."

Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth surprised fans last night with a new song. “Time of the Blue” is the first follow up we’ve heard to last year’s Dark Bird is Home and is a return to his acoustic roots.

Matsson said in a press release that the new song is “a complete reset to a place where just one simple thing is placed under the spotlight — the song itself.”

Check out “Time of the Blue” with accompanying new video in the player above, and don’t miss his back-to-back Toronto shows at the Danforth on July 11 and the Opera House on July 12.

CJ Camerieri arranged and played the French horns and trumpets so beautifully, Henri Bardot engineered and recorded those! Lyrics: Wind in trust Wind in sleep Wind in knowing what thoughts to keep it's not that damn impossible little wasteland farmer I get the job they make it rain but now I need your shadow friend The pioneer would ask his kid are we clowns just running? In your mind where you're always late because of dreams of no ordinary landscapes and the 'why?' in the margin is true it's where I fly, it's where I scribble that I love you, in the time of the blue Now, is it fear? How does it ring? How does it teach young birds to sing, and riot through the orchestra? When is quiet coming? to our minds where we're always late because of dreams of no ordinary landscapes and the 'why?' in the margin is true please don't doubt, I will get this and I love you, it's just the time of the blue And in time we are only strays from our birds and the rivers in our landscapes And the flying in the margin is true And in your shine, in the vastness of I love yous there's no time of the blue —— And, more music in the pipes… Who knows how long a future is? #thetallestmanonearth
