Set for release on 24th March via YALA! Records, Willie J Healey has announced his new album ‘Bunny’.
Pulling inspiration from funk, Philly soul and R&B, Willie says, “The whole era is something that I love. Long before making ‘Twin Heavy’, I had always listened to funk, soul and R&B, but for some reason it never translated into my own music. Really my inspiration was just the feel of things, I really enjoyed playing music that makes you feel really good.”
Alongside the news, he’s also sharing his new single ‘Dreams’. Speaking on the track, he says, “‘Dreams’ is a song I wrote when thinking about the cost of an ambition. The idea behind the video is, what would life be like if you had to carry all of the money you made on your back, and that if you did have to carry it you probably wouldn’t want as much.”
