Tall Tall Trees, the working name for experimental banjo player Mike Savino, is gearing up for the release of a new album this month. The record is technically his third under the Tall Tall Trees moniker, though to Savino, the fact that is the first to be written and recorded solo make it ostensibly the first. The album, titled Freedays, was composed at an “abandoned health retreat” in the mountains of Georgia called The Bird’s Nest, which Savino had become caretaker of. Almost all of the sounds used on the album are created with Savino’s banjo and stem from his toying with and expanding on the capabilities of the instrument.

With the album just a week away, Paste is excited to exclusively share the video for the song “Being There.”

Freedays is out Feb. 17 via Joyful Noise Recordings. Watch the “Being There” video above, and check out Paste Cloud audio from Tall Tall Trees’ 2013 Daytrotter session below, along with all of his upcoming tour dates, tickets for which are currently on sale.
