Tallest Man

The Tallest Man on Earth has released the first single from his upcoming fourth album, Dark Bird Is Home (due 5/12 via Dead Oceans). For someone who began as a raw, stripped-down artist, "Sagres" is his cleanest and most fleshed-out sounding song yet, but it's also still steeped in the melancholy of his last album. Check it out below.

Tallest Man has also announced a US tour that kicks off in Northampton the day after the album comes out, and culminates in NYC on June 3 at Beacon Theatre. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/27) at 11 AM.

Several international dates through October will follow. All dates are listed, with the new song, below...
