The Tallest Man on Earth Announces New Covers Album, Shares Hank Williams Cover

    The Tallest Man on Earth has announced a new covers LP titled Too Late for Edelweiss. The album takes its name from Håkan Hellström’s ‘För sent för Edelweiss’, which is covered on the record alongside songs by Lucinda Williams, the National, Hank Williams, Bon Iver, and more. Released this Friday (September 23) via -Anti, it will include the previously shared rendition of Yo La Tengo’s ‘Tears Are in Your Eyes’, as well as Hank Williams’ ‘Lost Highway’, which is out today. Take a listen below.

    “This past year, I’ve spent a lot of time touring but also writing and recording an album that I’m wildly proud of and will see the light of day eventually,” Kristian Matsson explained in a statement. “But in the small hours in between trips and sessions, mostly in my house in Sweden and an Airbnb in North Carolina, I lo-fi recorded some covers here and there. Many times as a reset button for my own song writing, to cleanse the palate from my whirlpool mind while writing songs. A little document of songs I had on my mind during those nights.”
