One of the most interesting little albums from last year in the sphere of singer-songwriters was the second record from The Tallest Man On Earth, otherwise known as Kristian Matsson, a 28-year-old from Sweden with a severe Bob Dylan complex. His The Wild Hunt ended up on many an end-of-year list.
Now, Matsson has revealed he is working on music for a feature film. Consequence of Sound reports that Matsson has teamed up with long-time collaborator Amanda Bergman of Idiot Wind to write the soundtrack to the film Once A Year. The film, described as a ‘romantic drama’ is directed by emerging Swedish filmmaker Gorki Glaser-Müller. The flick will feature seven songs from Matsson and Bergman recorded especially for the project; the tracks are reported to be largely made up of instrumentals.
The Tallest Man On Earth heads to Australia for dates this October, while here he is in all his Dylan-heavy glory.
