The Tallest Man on Earth covered Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” (watch)
Kristian Matsson, aka The Tallest Man on Earth, is in the midst of an ongoing video project titled The Light in Demos, a series where Matsson records himself performing new original material and covers. The second installment, titled "Same Ghost," is an absolutely gorgeous piano ballad. The third installment, released this morning, is a cover of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now," a song which Matsson claims to be "the best song in the world." It's a very wonderful rendition, and features Matsson's tender voice and guitar playing, along with horn accompaniment. You can watch both videos, and listen to Joni Mitchell's original version of "Both Sides Now," below.
The Tallest Man on Earth will be playing two shows with yMusic at Brooklyn's Pioneer Works on September 20 and September 21. Tickets are still available for night one, while night two tickets have sold out. The two released a collaborative EP earlier this year, which you can stream below via Spotify.
