Now Watching: Willie J Healey – 'Heavy Traffic'

Thursday, October 29, 2020


Amongst the chaos of 2020, Willie J Healey revealed his highly-anticipated sophomore album Twin Heavy. The critically-acclaimed 12-track offering shared via Yala! Records features Healey at his best and is a must-listen. The album is also home to his current single ‘Heavy Traffic’. 

The electrifying cut came to Healey mid-flight, where he was observing the many happenings surrounding him. He said, “I wrote 'Heavy Traffic' whilst on a flight. I effectively stole conversations people around me were having. I couldn’t believe it, they wrote it for me; south facing condos, nightmares and the notebook. I remember crying on that flight.”

The video, directed by Joe Wheatley and starring choreography by Vicki Heathcote, sees Healey talk about the possibility of hiring twelve ballet dancers. His wish becomes a reality, with him dancing up a storm with the ballerinas surrounding him.
