Chicago crooner Willis Earl Beal has leaked his latest reworked EP Principles of a Protagonist via BitTorrent, with permission from his label XL Recordings/Hot Charity. This will be a soundtrack to Beal’s new short-animated film of the same name. You can grab the torrent file via uTorrent, who are featuring the EP at the moment.
Beal claims to have been prone to leaving homemade novels, artwork and CD-Rs across America to promote his work as a street performer, suggesting a desire to be heard. Now he has label backing, he wants to follow his traditions of ‘gifting’ his work to fans. This material isn’t exactly new, and is mostly re-recorded material off this year’s LP Acousmatic Sorcery. But still a nice gift anyway.
