The Tallest Man On Earth has announced a new album, Henry St., due April 14 via ANTI- (pre-order). It was produced by Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn. and it also features Ryan Gustafson (guitar, lap steel, ukulele), TJ Maiani (drums), CJ Camerieri of Bon Iver (trumpet, French horn), Phil Cook (piano, organ), Rob Moose of Bon Iver, yMusic (strings) and Adam Schatz (saxophone).

"Henry St. is the most playful, most me album yet, because it covers so many of the different noises in my head," says Kristian Matsson. "When you overthink things, you get further away from your original ideas. And God knows I overthink things when I’m by myself." And about the time away from music due to the pandemic, he adds, "Having been away from it taught me that making music and performing is what I’m doing for the rest of my life, and I’m so grateful for it. It has given me new confidence and playfulness. This is what I do. It’s unconditional."

The first single is "Every Little Heart," of which Kristian says, "But of course I still have little demons inside of me. I wrote some key changes in the song that came natural to me, but I worried they might sound unnatural to others. When TJ Maiani heard it, he straightaway went into this drumbeat that shocked me a little at first, but came completely natural to him. It fit the song perfectly." It comes with a video directed by Jeroen Dankers and shot on 16mm Kodak film that's part one of a trilogy. Jeroen says the video "portrays a conflict you can have with your inner child, which you sometimes still have inside you and you want to let go, but that isn’t always easy."
