Shayna Rose Arnold of LA Magazine caught TTMOE last week at The Wiltern. Witnessing nothing short of a stellar performance, Arnold writes, “played all together, it’s clear that Matsson’s music is made to move to—to drive to, to run to, to explore to—and he’s on his own artistic journey.” LA Magazine also shares a video of Kristian and his wife Amanada closing the show with a gorgeous duet of “Thrown Right At Me.” Watch HERE.

Release Day: The Tallest Man On Earth’s “There’s No Leaving Now” Out Today!

Happy release day to The Tallest Man On Earth! Today Kristian releases his third lp, There’s No Leaving Now! It’s available in-stores and online. Order your copy from iTunes or SC Distribution now! You can also stream the album in full at Spotify.

“These 10 songs, like those before them, dazzle and shimmy and sulk, as Matsson continues to conjure images of a young Dylan projecting his voice through a megaphone.” – NPR

“The piano-driven title track is a continuation of something Matsson hinted at on his last full-length (The Wild Hunt); it’s a subtle departure, an assertion that he won’t be creatively contained.” – Creative Loafing

LSTN: The Tallest Man On Earth Featured on NPR’s Morning Edition

If you haven’t given it a listen already, head over to NPR and check out Monday’s Morning Edition. The show features The Tallest Man On Earth just in time for the release of his new album, There’s No Leaving Now, out officially tomorrow.

“Matsson says he’s dealt with stress and anxiety in his music, and his older songs often return to the theme of running away. But on his new record, he brings a fresh outlook: a feeling of wanting to confront, not run. His recent marriage seems to have made him stronger.” Check out The Tallest Man On Earth: Tired of Running HERE.

You can still listen to the new album at NPR’s First Listen. The stream will not last much longer, so check it out while you can.

Get your copy of There’s No Leaving Now at SC Distribution. Deluxe bundles featuring an exclusive 7″ still available.

Lyrics from The Tallest Man On Earth’s “There’s No Leaving Now”

The Tallest Man On Earth’s new record, There’s No Leaving Now, is out June 12th. Kristian shares lyrics from the album. Read below.

To Just Grow Away

We’re melting ruby hearts
a confusing trade
to burn the ore
to shape a blade
then to swing it low
beginners fate
to lose a skin
to just grow away
Like a rain, to help a river
but a river so hard to please
but I’ve grown to see the diamonds
you’ve thrown in just for me
We spent so many nights
just gathering stones
the silver tears
old sapphire bones
all the copper leaves
then dreamt, now true
look how they find their path
to cut right through
Like a rain, to help a river
but a river so hard to please
but I’ve grown to see the diamonds
you’ve thrown in just for me
Look when your hopeless child will figure
there are moments when hope’s not
only real when flagging far down a road
with an armful broken arrows
and no hand free for the bow
your kid will lose a battle
but your ways
will let him go
I lose my wish to drown
and aimless flee
what you’ve thrown to lose
is still right here with me.
