Tall Tall Shadow is the third full-length album by Canadian singer-songwriter Basia Bulat, released September 30, 2013 on Secret City Records.[1] Some early copies were sold with a limited-edition bonus disc, titled Live in London, which featured live performances of five songs from the original album.

The album was produced by Tim Kingsbury and Mark Lawson.[2]

The album was inspired in part by the death of someone in Bulat's personal life, although she has not provided extensive detail about it to the media.[3] At the time of the death, Bulat had an entirely different album ready to record, but felt that she could no longer connect to the material.[3] Instead, she decided to make an album which acknowledged the pain she was going through while ultimately being hopeful and uplifting.[4]

Some of the album's tracks were recorded in a Royal Canadian Legion hall in Toronto, Ontario's Beaches neighbourhood.[5]

The album was a shortlisted nominee for the Juno Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2014, and for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize.[6]
