Willis Earl Beal Shares New Album 'A Place That Doesn't Exist'
Experimental outsider Willis Earl Beal released his album Nobody Knows just a few months ago, but he's already followed it up with an unexpected new full-length called A Place That Doesn't Exist.

The eight-song album was uploaded to SoundCloud today (January 28) and it's available to stream below.
,br> It's an eclectic affair that spans acoustic ditties, cinematic soundscapes and full-band cuts. There are also some truly bizarre experiments, particularly the bathroom-fixated "Toilet Parade (Ode to NYC)," which includes the lyric, "Please direct in a film about finding the toilet / Where the main character finds the toilet / And does his business."

Beal told 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."

Beal offered up the album as an apology for cancelling his upcoming European tour. Fans can read his note about the situation over at this blog.
