Glee's Chord Overstreet Recording Original Music: Listen to 'Beautiful Girl'

Last week's episode of "Glee" saw the fan-demanded return of Chord Overstreet (aka the "trouty-mouthed" Sam Evans), who showed off a new stripped-down appearance (literally -- Sam's stripping to pay the bills). Now Overstreet is stripping down in a more artistic sense, jumping in to studio to record original music.

'Glee' Recap: Chord Overstreet Returns in Jam-Packed Episode

Listen below for Overstreet's own "Beautiful Girl," which he finished in the studio just this past weekend. The pop-rock track starts off midtempo and piano-driven, but as it crescendos ever-so-slighty, drum beats, synthy strings and vocal dubs find their way in.

Although Overstreet is currently unsigned, we're told he's focusing on his own music in the coming year.

Gleeks, what do you think of Overstreet's "Beautiful Girl"? Would you buy his solo album?
