While the Tallest Man on Earth didn't release an album in 2011, the Swedish folkie kept himself busy with a string of stopgap releases like a film score, Adult Swim single and a reissue. That will change in 2012, since songwriter Kristian Matsson has officially announced a new LP.
The album is called There's No Leaving Now, and it will be out on June 12 through Dead Oceans. See the album cover above. There's no word as to exactly what the album will sound like, but for the meantime, you can peruse the tracklist below.
