The Tallest Man On Earth unveils new track 'Somewhere In The Mountains, Somewhere In New York'

After sharing the first and title-track of his 'When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground' series earlier this month, The Tallest Man On Earth has now returned to share the next cut from his new collection.

The new single 'Somewhere In The Mountains, Somewhere In New York' has been released through AWAL / Kobalt Recordings, and is accompanied by a video episode directed by the frontman himself.

Speaking to NPR, frontman Kristian Mattson says, "For most of my career, I’ve written songs and saved them up in notebooks and voice memos. I’d record some of those songs, and then wait a half a year for them to be released. It all seemed very separate and compartmentalized and that’s always struck me as a bit unnatural. Even though they were abstract and maybe naive, they came from reacting to things happening around me in the moment.

"Of course what those moments are change as we get older and so does how we process them. “Somewhere In The Mountains, Somewhere In New York” is about learning more and more about gratitude for positive things in life, big and small, and how to accept life's changing nature, to snap out of fear of change and new challenges. But there are moments when being reasonable is not on the map; "I don't want this to happen, please”. This is a song that is a snapshot of a moment like that and was written and recorded in just a couple of hours."
