Willie J Healey this week returned with a brand new single, this time sharing ‘Why You Gotta Do It’, which follows in the footsteps of his 2019 EP Hello Good Morning. His latest gem is set to appear on his forthcoming sophomore album, which is due to be released this year via YALA! Records.

Drawing upon influences including classic Americana and 70s psychedelic pop, Healey’s new single is a moving and reflective number about why money isn’t always the answer — he also acknowledges that it comes in handy sometimes, which is something we can all relate to. On the single, he said, “Why you gotta do it? You’re breaking my heart. You know it doesn’t make you happy. It’s a love song to myself and anyone else who needs some cash”
