The Tallest Man On Earth Announces Henry St

The Tallest Man On Earth has announced his new album Henry St., his first full-length in four years, will drop on out April 14th via ANTI-. with the news, Matsson presents he has lead single/video, “Every Little Heart,” and announces a spring run of intimate, shows in North America ahead of a full European tour (on sale now). In 2020, Matsson left New York City and returned to his farm in Sweden where he drowned out his thoughts by manically growing vegetables in his garden. Imaginative writing did not come easily to Matsson during this time of collective forced solitude, and when it did, he found himself commenting on the darkness. It was only near the end of 2021, as he began to tour again, that the inspiration returned. “When I’m in motion, I can focus on my instinct, have my daydreams again. When I was finally able to tour again, I started writing like a madman.”

The project of Swedish musician Kristian Matsson – The Tallest Man On Earth’s sixth album, Henry St., notably marks the first time Matsson recorded an album in a band setting. “My entire career I’ve been a DIY person, mostly fueled by the feeling that I didn’t know what I was doing, so I’d just do everything myself.” But now, longing for the energy that’s only released when creating together with others, Matsson invited his friends to come and play. Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn produced the album, which includes contributions from Ryan Gustafson (guitar, lap steel, ukulele), TJ Maiani (drums), CJ Camerieri of Bon Iver (trumpet , French horn), Phil Cook (piano, organ), Rob Moose of Bon Iver, yMusic (strings) and Adam Schatz (saxophone), all supporting and surrounding Matsson on vocals and guitars. “They opened everything up, and understood what the songs that I’d written needed: sounds that I couldn’t ever have thought of or created myself. We recorded so many of the songs live in the studio, playing, having fun and being really open with each other.”

Today’s single, “Every Little Heart,” came from a feeling of fearlessness, a confidence in making music after two years of relative silence. “But of course I still have little demons inside of me. I wrote some key changes in the song that came natural to me, but I worried they might sound unnatural to others. When TJ Maiani heard it, he straightaway went into this drumbeat that shocked me a little at first, but came completely natural to him. It fit the song perfectly.” The “Every Little Heart” video is the first part of a trilogy. It was directed by Jeroen Dankers and shot on 16mm Kodak film. Dankers explains that the video, “portrays a conflict you can have with your inner child, which you sometimes still have inside you and you want to let go, but that isn’t always easy.”
