Each time that you hit play on a Willie J Healey song, he takes you to another place and his latest song ‘True Stereo’ is certainly no exception. The single is the third to be released from his brand new album Twin Heavy, which will be released on August 7th via Yala! Records.

Also set to appear on the album will be previous tracks ‘Why You Gotta Do It’ and ‘Songs For Joanna’, with his latest cut yet another enticing preview of what’s to come from the album.

‘True Stereo’ sees him find a charming balance of pop and rock, whilst weaving in the vibrant sounds of the baritone guitar as well as an enchanting melody. On the single, he said, “'True Stereo’ comes from a good place. 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.”

Though August might feel like a long way away, we have a good feeling that the album is definitely going to be worth the wait.
