Willis Earl Beal has unexpectedly dropped a brand new album entitled A Place That Doesn’t Exist. According to the soul singer, the eight-track collection is a “peace offering of sorts”, following a string of recently cancelled European tour dates.
Beal, whose sophomore record Nobody knows hit shelves just a few months ago, had previously hinted at the new LP, but at the time provided no details regarding its release. Via an interview with Under The Radar earlier this month:
…I’m very prolific in terms of recording. I record a lot, and I’ve got a whole other record, and it’s going to be called A Place That Doesn’t Exist, and I’d like to give it away for free. But I’m not entirely sure. Seeing as how I used other musicians on this record, and I’m not sure if that would be the best use of resources to just give it away for free. But I would like to.
