The Tallest Man On Earth first played KEXP back in 2009 when their video series had just launched. Perhaps you remember his performance of “Where Do My Bluebird Fly,” a video that now holds almost two million views. KEXP recently beckoned Kristian back for a second performance and he obliged, giving us a four-song set. His return includes three songs off his new album, There’s No Leaving Now, and a wonderful cover of David Bazan’s “Lost My Shape.” Watch above!
Pitchforktv and MPLS.tv bring you a new video of The Tallest Man On Earth performing a wonderful, acoustic version of “Revelation Blues.” Director Dan Huiting filmed the video on a Chicago rooftop for the City of Music series in early August, following Kristian’s show at Lollapalooza. Watch above!

After performing at KCRW, Kristian traveled up to Portland’s Kink Radio for another live session at The Bing Lounge. Watch the three-song set below in our Youtube playlist.
Finally, ABC News’ AudioFile music series caught up with Kristian backstage at his New York City Town Hall show. He talks about growing up in Sweden and his reasons for writing his new album. Watch the interview HERE.
The Tallest Man On Earth recently stopped by WXPN for a World Cafe session. Kristian plays four songs off There’s No Leaving Now for David Dye and chats about the record, playing with Montezumas and the origins of his solo career. The show starts with Kristian’s performance of “To Just Grow Away” at XPN Live Friday Free at Noon Concert, in which he played to a sold-out crowd.
