Willis Earl Beal has released the first single from his forthcoming album. “Traveling Eyes” is a sprawling, strung-apart hymn showcasing the quieter talents of Beal’s vocal range. After deciding to leave XL Recordings just recently, his newest album will be self-released. “Traveling Eyes” offers a subtle strength that could mark a successful separation from any major label.
Willis Earl Beal’s next album, Experiments in Time , is slated for release on Aug. 8.
