New Tallest Man On Earth EP

Last week, Swedish singer-songhero The Tallest Man On Earth was in The Netherlands. He played at the Melkweg and at Into The Great Wide Open on Vlieland. Both shows were amazing, Mattson (in love) was on fire. And now, out of the blue, there are new songs! Sometimes the Blues Is Just A Passing Bird is the title of a five-song EP (Even the title is great).

The new EP will be for sale exclusively on iTunes until its official release date. CDs, LPs and digital copies will be available at all othe retailers on November 9th, 2010 (8th in UK). You can download Like the Wheel for free: click.

Like the Wheel, along with four other new songs, make up Sometimes The Blues is Just a Passing Bird, an EP written entirely after The Wild Hunt. Recorded during a quick break from touring in the summer of 2010, “Like the Wheel” is joined by “The Dreamer,” which Matsson performs on electric guitar. Amazing song!
Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird is an open and shut chapter in the Tallest Man On Earth’s songbook – five new additions to those magical performances.

Little River
The Dreamer
Like the Wheel
Tangle in This Trampled Wheat
Thrown Right at Me

As you know, The Tallest Man On Earth will be on tour this fall and will play Le Guess Who? 2010 (on Sunday 28th). Buy your tickets here.
