Published May 17, 2012It's a simple concept: give Willis Earl Beal a call and he'll sing you a song. That's the premise behind the soulful vocalist and visual artist's newest video for the track "(773) 295-2135."
Via the folks at Yours Truly, the clip for the melancholic, gospel-tinged number features Beal singing and doodling in a cluttered room in grandmother's Chicago home, taking calls from strangers and sharing some music with them. You can check out "(773) 295-2135" below.
Beal is set to tour the world this summer and will be making several festival stops, including one at Calgary's Sled Island Festival on June 21. You can see all the dates here.
His latest album, Acousmatic Sorcery, is available now via XL imprint Hot Charity.
