The Tallest Man on Earth's New Album I LOVE YOU. IT'S A FEVER DREAM. Streaming Now On NPR's First Listen

NPR Music's "First Listen" is exclusively streaming The Tallest Man on Earth's new album,I Love You. It's A Fever Dream. NPR says "the preeminent Swedish one-man folkie reviving the genre and to update that over a decade after his initial breakthrough." The LP is set for release April 19 via/through AWAL Recordings; pre-order the record HERE. Pitchfork premiered new album track "I'm A Stranger Now;" listen HERE.

Matsson notes of the record he wrote, produced and engineered, "Making the album, I was thinking a lot about the lenses we view our lives through. For some reason, our worst tendencies seem to be carried out so loudly, while our best can go unnoticed. I've come to realize that some of the most powerful, most inspiring moments in my life have been the most subtle and that so often the thing that deserves my attention, is trying the least to get it."

The Tallest Man on Earth will begin a world tour in support of the new record, kicking off April 17 in Durham, NC. See below for a complete list of dates.

Born in Dalarna, Sweden, Mattson released the critically acclaimed Shallow Grave in 2008. He went on to release three more full length albums, The Wild Hunt (2010), There's No Leaving Now (2012) and The Dark Bird is Home (2015), which Pitchfork calls "surreal and dreamlike," while Consequence of Sound calls the record "honest storytelling that grows from bare guitar into a lush, flowery, full-band adieu." He also released an EP, When the Bird Sees Solid Ground, in 2018.
