The Tallest Man on Earth signs to Dead Oceans

Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man on Earth is Sweden's very own version of a modern day Bob Dylan. It's not only Matsson's vocal stylings but the guy flat out knows how to tell a story with his words. He first gained some notoriety here in the U.S. while supporting Bon Iver on his tour dates, wowing crowds that came out early. The Tallest Man on Earth just recently signed on with the label Dead Oceans (Bowerbirds, Dirty Projectors), who will be releasing his second LP, The Wild Hunt on April 13th (April 12th in the UK).
Listen to the album track “King of Spain” below, and stay tuned for soon to be announced North American tour dates.
