Willie J Healey announces details of new album ‘Twin Heavy’

He's also shared new single 'True Stereo'

Willie J Healey has announced that he will be releasing a new album called ‘Twin Heavy’.

Due for release on August 7, the singer-songwriter accompanied the news with new track ‘True Stereo’, which he says “came from a good place”.

“I wrote it while trying out my friend Casper’s baritone guitar,” he explained in a press release. “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.”
