THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH RELEASES FINAL SONG FROM FIVE PART SERIES: "WHEN THE BIRD SEES THE SOLID GROUND"
Music News - Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man on Earth, has reached the end of his five part series, When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground, with the beautiful "Then I Won't Sing No More". The series started out as a vision to create music outside of the restrictions of a typical album cycle. Matsson began recording and releasing music as it was written and pairing each song with a video episode, expanding on his longtime interest in photography and filmmaking. What he didn't expect was that the series would become a narrative over the course of a period of personal heartbreak and subsequent healing. Revisiting each song/video in the series, in the original order, is like looking into a window into his very recent past. NPR agreed, saying, "It's Photo credit: Kristian Matsson
like receiving a video message from a friend who wants you to see his process unfold in real time, the more ragged the better. Of course, for all his stated love of imperfections, Matsson's actual performance is a thing of refined and impeccable beauty"
Matsson also reflected on the series, "Finishing this project was so liberating. I realized I'd been dwelling in this place and couldn't see how lucky I am and how incredible my life is. Turning in "Then I Won't Sing No More" and finishing When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground lifted me up, it was a ride and I feel better now than I have in a long time."
