The Tallest Man On Earth has just released the newest song from his five part series, ‘When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground’. The new original studio recording, Down In My Heart, is released via Kobalt Recordings, and accompanied by a video episode directed by Kristian Matsson…

Mattson says of the song, “I’ve been trying to figure out what When The Bird Sees Solid Ground is ever since I started it, and I made a little progress with this song. ‘Down In My Heart’ happened really late one night while I was playing a finger picking that I’d made myself learn a few years ago”

A year ago Matsson began pursuing a vision, though he wasn’t quite sure what it was. Something about making music but getting away from the cycle of having to record a dozen songs and then wait almost a year for them to come out. Something too about making his own videos, an expansion on a long time interest in photography and filmmaking. What came to be was ‘A Light In Demos’. Songs were recorded quickly, almost entirely on camera. Songs and videos were developed simultaneously at an unreasonable pace, which gave way to a frenetic energy that Matsson found exhilarating. ‘The Light In Demos’ helped pave the way for ‘When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground’, which expands on the original concept by changing it in a few major ways. This time around songs will also be recorded in the studio allowing them to be properly mixed and mastered, additionally the songs will be released on their own and available wherever you listen to music
