One of his first projects outside 1D is working with the New York City duo Drull. They’ve already crafted about ten songs.
Beales recently shared his collaboration with Drull on his Twitter in late 2014. He wrote, “Very excited to announce I will be appearing on the debut album of @DrullMusic in 2015. It’s shaping up to be amazing. Watch this space.” Fans also have to thank the internet for bringing Beales and Drull together. Beales met Drull members, Elijah Amant and Sadot White in an email exchange when Amant was handling the publicity for Wheatus‘ single “Only You,” which Sandy Beales was featured on.
Of his work with Drull, Beales said, “As far as my role in Drull X Sandy Beales goes, I have recorded my parts of the album over 4 or 5 continents, probably 10-15 different countries, so each song for me has a special relation to the place I was touring at the time.”
The first single of the collaborative album is called “Blind Sea.” The song has a moody sound comprised of vocals from Drull and Beales doing his thing on the bass. Take a listen to it below.
