Willis Earl Beal has shared a surprise new album after announcing his forthcoming European tour has been cancelled. He is offering up a free album as a "peace offering" for all of his fans in Europe that won't be able to see him now.
On his Tumblr, he wrote: "Greetings. This is Willis Earl Beal with a most unfortunate update. My upcoming European tour has been cancelled. I want to thank the folks who bought tickets and assure them that this was NOT my decision. At this point, the reason that I'm not touring is as mysterious to me as it is to you. Hell, if it were up to me, I'd go down there and sing a capella while standing on a milk crate on the sidewalk. Wouldn't be the first time. I even told them this, but, to no avail."
