Actress Mischa Barton stars as cult member in Willis Earl Beal's 'Coming Through' video - watch

The song features on Beal's 2013 album 'Nobody Knows'

Actress Mischa Barton guest stars as a cult member in the video for Willis Earl Beal's song, 'Coming Through'.

The 10 minute long video for the Cat Power-featuring song - from last year's 'Nobody Knows' album - sees the former star of The OC as a member of Beal's Church Of Nobody, a cult-like group based in New Mexico. The video is made up of grainy camcorder footage and veers on the NSFW. Click above to watch the video.

The video features a large scale version of a piece of Beal's art, called Mischa, why the pencil?. Speaking last year to NME about the drawing, Beal commented: "The concept is really abstract. I think Mischa Barton is pretty attractive, so I drew her and myself stood behind her, but nothing specifically is happening... I've drawn quite a few lascivious pictures and there aren't meant to be themes to them – I guess I'm just a person who likes to draw attractive women.”

Willis Earl Beal recently shared a surprise new album after announcing his European tour had been cancelled. The Chicago musician was expected to play a string of dates around the continent in February, including one UK date at London's Village Underground.

Posting 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."

As a "peace offering of sorts", Beal shared a new album, 'A Place That Doesn't Exist', for free. You can listen to the eight track record below.
