Chicago singer/songwriter Willis Earl Beal shared the first taste of his sophomore release with his new track, 'Too Dry To Cry'.

Off his forthcoming LP, Nobody knows., Beal has crafted a shuffling ramshackle of a track, blending gospel, soul, and blues, all with his experimental touches. An off-kilter guitar line is joined by a stomp-n-clap beat that drives this vehicle for a tale of heartbreak.

Nobody knows. drops September 9 via HXC Recordings/XL Recordings. Beal is bringing his tour with a full band to Eurpoe this fall. Check out the dates below:
