The Tallest Man on Earth has released ‘Henry St.’, the title track from his forthcoming album. Following lead offering ‘Every Little Heart’, the song arrives with an accompanying visual filmed in Amsterdam, the second in a trilogy of videos directed by Jeroen Dankers for the record. Watch and listen below.
Commenting on the new single, Kristian Matsson said in a statement: “As individuals, we’re told that we should strive for success. But when we have it, it doesn’t solve anything. The song is about stepping away and thinking: why am I actually doing this?”
He added, “It’s the low point and the turnaround: the other songs are a reminder that I will always be a stubborn optimist, even at the darkest of times.” He was about to record the track as a solo piece, until Phil Cook came in on his first day in the studio. “I had Phil basically hanging over my shoulders at the piano while we were playing, and then he recorded it. He improvised that beautiful outro. When he did, our jaws dropped––I was in tears.”
Henry St. will be released on April 14 via ANTI-.
