Joining the ranks of one Mr. Sufjan Stevens, who just a few weeks ago released the All Delighted People
EP with exactly zero prior notice, The Tallest Man on Earth
has now done the same, with Sometimes the Blues is Just a Passing Bird
, a five-song EP that's available for purchase right now on iTunes and will be released on CD, LP and to all other online retailers on November 9th. The EP was recorded during a break form touring in support of the excellent Wild Hunt
album released earlier this year, and you can download a track from it here
. It's called "Like the Wheel," and it just might be the best song he's ever written. Which is saying an awful lot.
