Set for release on 7th August, Willie’s sophomore album ‘Twin Heavy’ will be released via YALA! Records, and he’s celebrating the news by revealing new track ‘True Stereo’.
“‘True Stereo’ came from a good place,” says Willie. “I wrote it while trying out my friend Casper’s baritone guitar. I was like, ‘damn this sounds funky!’ I then transferred that tuning to a regular six string, which gave it a really warped sludgy sound. That baritone inspired the whole idea.”
We spoke to him about the creation of the new record last year, and he explained: “My first album was a bit like a Beatles album; there’s all different types of songs on it and it’s kind of all over the place. This album is still quite varied but it has more of a definite style. I think I’ve found a happy medium for myself. I’ve found my sound. Overall, I’m a lot more comfortable with myself and confident with my songwriting whereas before I was always maybe drawing on other people quite heavily.”
