Release Date April 14, 2015. Dark Bird Is Home The Tallest Man On Earth. 1. Fields of Our Home.
Dark Bird Is Home, his first album since 2012's There's No Leaving Now, continues in this vein, and Matsson's persona fades even more into the tapestry he's made with his music. Matsson handles most of the performances, including keyboards and drums. He has some extra players-most notably background vocals and strings from Bon Iver 's Mike Noyce-to fill the songs out, but the majority of the starry musical textures are Matsson's
While 'Dark Bird Is Home' is The Tallest Man at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, it’s also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings - which feels fresh for The Tallest Man on Earth, and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, like old cars & tightly wound clocks. The lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming, like tall trees & wide hills. The other musicians and layers on this recording put a wide lens on familiar themes. released May 12, 2015.

Early on, Kristian Matsson, the Swedish singer and songwriter better known as the Tallest Man on Earth, was content to be a simple contemporary folkie, strumming and singing all by his lonesome. But having taken that formula as far as he cared to go, he's been consistently upping the production value on his albums, and in terms of his studio treatments, Matsson's fourth full-length, 2015's Dark Bird Is Home, is his most ambitious set to date

Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, who is not the tallest man on earth, is following a Dylanish musical progression: after three albums of wordy folk minimalism, he’s reached his noisy stage – and it’s promising. Opening track Fields of Our Home starts understatedly, with Matsson’s high, arid vocal lines shadowed by a banjo, but acquires layers of guitar, brass and keyboards which gradually swamp his voice. When the massed weight of the instruments kicks in, there’s a triumphalism that recalls Simple Minds in their stadium pomp. Lyrically, Matsson is more than usually opaque. The album’s theme is the break-up of his marriage – as the acerbic chorus of Timothy goes: She said, ‘Why are you so complicated?’ – but he doesn’t give much else away. No need: Dark Bird is lovely as it is. Topics.
