The Tallest Man on Earth - "A Field of Birds" live video

Since the release of "Weather Of A Killing Kind" this summer, I've been awaiting the news of a new album from Swedish folk troubadour Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth. And while no such announcement has been made, I stumbled upon this live video of Matsson playing a new song called "A Field Of Birds". It's The Tallest Man on Earth you've come to love - intricate fingerstyle guitar work and that husky vocals that spawned two albums and an EP. So while there's no news yet of a new album, I'm grateful for these videos that pop up every once in awhile that prove that Matsson takes no rest from writing amazing songs. Enjoy this live video for "A Field of Birds":

"A Field of Birds" is part of the Live on KEXP compilation alongside artists like Florence + the Machine, The Head and the Heart, Sharon Van Etten, and more.


  1. Not to burst your bubble, as I'm just as anxious for new TMOE as you are, but this is actually a song he recorded back in 2008 as part of the Yellow Bird Project:

  2. Ahhh yeah I figured that out after some digging. I just hadn't heard of it until KEXP put it on their Live Compilation that just came out. So it's not necessarily new but it's new to me and any "new" Tallest Man is good enough for me.
