The Tallest Man on Earth goes searching for meaning on the beach near Amsterdam in the new video for ‘Looking For Love’. This is the third single from the ‘Henry St.’ album on Anti- Records, a collaboration between The Tallest man on Earth (AKA Kristian Matsson) and Nick Sanborn from Sylvan Esso.   Matsson is wandering past a massive power station near the sea, his dressing gown hanging on his shoulders.  Glimpses of a woman flash by.   Night falls and he heads off into the distance.

Matsson reflects on creating the song with Sanborn, The first day in the studio, Nick created this hissing noise while I was feedbacking electric guitar. We had so much fun jamming like that. Then Nick put down some piano to overdub my guitar, and we knew we had the song.” The tone for their collaboration was set. “Nick is so emotionally intelligent, and we share an almost childlike joy in things that can happen with music. He makes the songs come truly alive by keeping the performances and the humanity in––the kind of stuff that just happens during the session.”

The Tallest Man on Earth will be touring the UK and Europe through the summer to support the new album.
