Best New Track: The Tallest Man on Earth's "Sagres"

If this new single doesn't make you want summer and everything that comes with it - bikes, patios, lakes, parks - I would be very surprised.

Released this morning, "Sagres" is easily the most robust production I've ever heard from Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson and his one-man project, The Tallest Man On Earth. His normally understated, wispy folk tales are genius, no less, but the lush instrumentation on this bigger, airy track is totally captivating. As always, the Dylan and Petty influences are palpable in his achy voice, but something about this sunny, soul searcher's anthem evokes memories of Tunnel of Love Springsteen, also.

You can listen to the beautiful ode below, and look out for it on Dark Bird Is Home, on May 12 (via Dead Oceans).
