In the same week that Death Grips controversially leaked their new album NO LOVE DEEP WEB, Willis Earl Beal jumps on the free release bandwagon. The soulful Chicago artist has leaked his new Principles of a Protagonist EP, with his label XL Recordings teaming up with BitTorrent to release the extended play for free. Apparently all you need to do is ask your record label (*cough* Death Grips *cough*). Download it here.
Principles of a Protagonist will serve as the soundtrack for Beal's upcoming animated film of the same name, and below you can stream the new version of "Cosmic Queries" as well as the tracklist for the EP—the EP is comprised of re-recorded versions of songs from Beal's debut album Acousmatic Sorcery.
Principles of a Protagonist EP:
01. Away My Silent Lover
02. Sambo Joe From the Rainbow
03. Evening’s Kiss
04. Swing on Low
