Dead Oceans celebrates the 10th anniversary of The Tallest Man On Earth‘s (Kristian Matsson) The Wild Hunt by releasing a bonus track, Matsson’s cover of “Graceland” by Paul Simon. The Wild Hunt was issued by Dead Oceans in 2010 and “Graceland” served as the B-side to single “King Of Spain,” a vinyl release only available for purchase during The Tallest Man On Earth’s European tour that year.
