Published Jul 24, 2013Chicago-based outsider pop artist Willis Earl Beal has unveiled another weird one from his upcoming Nobody Knows LP. This time around, it's a haunting spiritual-styled stomp titled "Too Dry to Cry."
While the arrangement initially offers up an out-of-tune acoustic guitar blues lick, it soon has Beal sermonizing about the wonders of his nine-inch pitchfork atop a menacing cavalcade of back-porch kicks and claps.
You can check out the skirt-disturbing single down below.
As previously reported, Nobody Knows arrives September 10 in North America and a day earlier overseas via Hot Charity/XL, and features a guest appearance from Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) on "Coming Through."
