Willie J Healey has shared a final preview of his forthcoming new album ‘Bunny’. His new track ‘Woke Up Smiling’ boasts a real positivity, and lands in the midst of the singer’s current touring run with Arctic Monkeys.

“I wrote this during a glorious period of my life,” Willie has said of the track. “I was living in a studio flat in Bristol, it had these huge sash windows which let huge amounts of morning sun in. I’d make coffee and sit with my guitar & cat, I’m pretty sure my cat helped me write that song.”
