Last August, Willis Earl Beal released Experiments in Time, an album which he called his “lo-fi symphony.” The soul singer will continue to stick with a minimalist aesthetic for his next LP, Noctunes. The 12-track effort was originally issued as a 300-copy “limited edition” release back in January, but will finally be made available everywhere on August 28th via Tender Loving Empire.

“People had all these ideas about what I was supposed to be,” Beal said in a statement. “I had only ever wanted to make lullabies. … I wanted to create this persona that could say everything perfectly with very little. The record, to me, is a perfect record. I listen to that thing a lot, and it helps me.”
