WATCH // The Tallest Man On Earth Returns to KEXP for a Live Session, Covers David Bazan

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!
