Willie J Healey has unveiled his latest single, ‘Woke Up Smiling’.
The song is the final track to be previewed from new album ‘Bunny’, which is set to drop on 25th August.
“I wrote this during a glorious period of my life,” Whillie explains. “I was living in a studio flat in Bristol, it had these huge sash windows which let huge amounts of morning sun in. I’d make coffee and sit with my guitar & cat, I’m pretty sure my cat helped me write that song.”
The singer-songwriter reflects on this particular chapter, saying, “The whole era is something that I love. Long before making ‘Twin Heavy’, I had always listened to funk, soul and R&B, but for some reason it never translated into my own music. Really my inspiration was just the feel of things.’’
