on March 22, 2016, 4:40pm

Last May, The Tallest Man on Earth’s Kristian Matsson released his fourth studio album in Dark Bird Is Home. Today, he returns with an accompanying short film that gives fans a look at how the LP came together.

Simply titled A Short Film About Dark Bird Is Home, the nearly nine-minute visual includes footage from the recording sessions as well as more personal moments in which Matsson enjoys the lovely Swedish outdoors. The film is narrated by Matsson himself, alternating between English and his native tongue, while Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Collin Stetson) serves as director.

Watch below.

Along with the short film, Matsson has announced a leg of North American tour dates in continued support of Dark Bird is Home. The trek includes festival appearances at Ottawa BluesfestFestival d’Ete International de Quebec, and Nelsonville Music Festival in Nelsonville, Ohio.
