THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH
Announces Julie Byrne as support for Autumn UK/EU tour
New album I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. in stores this Friday (28th June)
Having only been available digitally since it’s initial airing back in April, The Tallest Man on Earth’s new album, I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. is released on physical formats this Friday (28th June) via AWAL. Pre-order and play the record HERE.
Kristian Matsson notes of the record he wrote, produced and engineered, “Making the album, I was thinking a lot about the lenses we view our lives through. For some reason, our worst tendencies seem to be carried out so loudly, while our best can go unnoticed. I’ve come to realize that some of the most powerful, most inspiring moments in my life have been the most subtle and that so often the thing that deserves my attention, is trying the least to get it.”
The Tallest Man on Earth will return to the UK for a full tour this Autumn, and has just announced Julie Byrne as support. Dates are as follows:
Saturday 2nd November – Town Hall, Birmingham
Sunday 3rd November – Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Monday 4th November – Sage, Newcastle
Wednesday 6th November – Hammersmith Apollo, London
Saturday 9th November – Albert Hall, Manchester
Born in Dalarna, Sweden, Mattson released the critically acclaimed Shallow Grave in 2008. He went on to release three more full length albums, The Wild Hunt (2010), There’s No Leaving Now (2012) and The Dark Bird is Home (2015), which Pitchfork calls “surreal and dreamlike,” while Consequence of Sound calls the record “honest storytelling that grows from bare guitar into a lush, flowery, full-band adieu.” He also released an EP, When the Bird Sees Solid Ground, in 2018.
In recent years Matsson has undertaken single oriented projects that incorporate writing, producing and self releasing songs and videos in regular intervals, often with purposefully intense deadlines. He’s described finding inspiration in entire process, and in particular in the satisfaction of making something and having it out quickly. For listeners and viewers the fascination has been in watching an artist work through his life, in problems and celebrations large and small, putting his thoughts out into the world while he’s still processing them himself and in watching them evolve over time.
