With the release of his much-anticipated new album Twin Heavy fast approaching on August 7th via Yala! Records, Willie J Healey has unleashed another exciting taste of what’s to come with his newly released track ‘Fashun’. Also featuring on the album will be previous singles such as ‘True Stereo’, ‘Songs For Joanna’ and ‘Why You Gotta Do It’.

Set to be track one on the album, 'Fashun' will ensure that Twin Heavy is off to a big start. The vibrant single came to life after an improvised session with producer/drummer Loren Humphreys. Healey said on the recording experience of ’Fashun’, “The session was so exciting. I was having a really good time in New York. One night a bunch of Loren's friends came down to the studio and we just started playing. It was so fun, we didn’t speak about who would play what which made it really wild and I think we got ‘Fashun’ in two takes. I’ll never forget the look in Loren’s eye while behind the kit. A wild man was driving the train and we all loved the ride.”

Before it’s time to devour Twin Heavy from beginning to end in August, be sure to dive into ‘Fashun’ below.
