Willis Earl Beal has gone from homeless to releasing his music through XL Recordings, which houses such artists as Adele, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, King Krule and Jai Paul. That's not an easy thing to do. You can still hear the struggle that Beal went through in every word he breathes. The Chicago native follows up his extremely lo-fi debut LP by bringing a richer sound to Nobody knows. Still far from being shiny and polished, the record showcases Beal's raw soul in a new light. Scheduled to drop on September 10, pre-order Nobody knows. on iTunes now.
