Listen: Tallest Man on Earth - "1904"

There doesn't seem to be any stopping Swedish folk guitarist Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth. After releasing not only his incredible sophomore album The Wild Hunt back in 2010 but his Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird EP later that same year, the man took what we all would agree was a well deserved break - although not really considering he toured a bit and released "Weather Of A Killing Kind" as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program last year. Turns out, that break wasn't even real. Matsson is gearing up to release another selection of what promises to be finger-picked guitar gems with his upcoming third album There's No Leaving Now next month.

While everything's been pretty quiet since the initial album announce, we can now hear brand new track "1904" which is more of that Tallest Man goodness we've come to love. It's a bit of a conundrum how the man can keep churning out tracks of his high caliber of songwriting while also improving his technique (both vocally and instrumentally speaking) but it's certainly appreciated. "1904" is almost bursting at the seams with hopeful splendor, a rolling surprisingly fast-paced (at least in the rather fluid guitar lines) track which is really just makes the album seem tragically far away.

The Tallest Man on Earth's third album There's No Leaving Now is out June 12th on Dead Oceans.
