The Tallest Man On Earth - il progetto del musicista svedese Kristian Matsson - annuncia Henry St., primo album dopo 4 anni in uscita il 14 aprile su ANTI- e pubblica il singolo "Every Little Heart". Dopo aver trascorso gran parte dell'ultimo decennio in tournée in tutto il mondo come The Tallest Man On Earth, Matsson ha affascinato il pubblico utilizzando "every inch of his long guitar cord to roam the stage: darting around, crouching, stretching, hip-twitching, perching briefly and jittering away…." (The New York Times).


Nel 2020, Matsson lasciò New York City e tornò alla sua fattoria in Svezia, dove affogava i suoi pensieri coltivando maniacalmente le verdure nell'orto. In questo periodo di solitudine collettiva forzata, la scrittura immaginativa non è stata facile per Matsson e, quando lo è stata, si è trovato a raccontare l'oscurità. Solo verso la fine del 2021, quando ricominciò ad andare in tournée, l'ispirazione tornò.


"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".

Alla fine ha messo insieme delle canzoni, ottenendo quello che sarebbe diventato Henry St, un album che vede Matsson esplorare il proprio ostinato ottimismo e "come essere una persona in questo mondo".


Following 2015’s Dark Bird Is A Home, his “most personal record… surreal and dreamlike” (Pitchfork) and the self-released I Love You, It’s a Fever Dream in 2019, 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.”

“Henry St. is the most playful, most me album yet, because it covers so many of the different noises in my head,” says Matsson. “When you overthink things, you get further away from your original ideas. And God knows I overthink things when I’m by myself.” The time in isolation also brought him some newfound peace of mind. “Having been away from it taught me that making music and performing is what I’m doing for the rest of my life, and I’m so grateful for it. It has given me new confidence and playfulness. This is what I do. It’s unconditional.”


Mattson will be touring Europe and the UK this spring. Dates are listed below and tickets are available here.
