The Tallest Man On Earth has shared a new song.

Somewhere In The Mountains, Somewhere In New York is the latest track to be shared from his five-part series, 'When The Bird Sees The Solid Ground'.

Speaking about it to NPR, the Swedish singer-songwriter said:

"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."

Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
