It's a 70s tinged return from the songwriter...

Willie J Healey has shared his sparkling new single 'Why You Gotta Do It'.

The songwriter is close to completing his second album, which is slated to come out before the end of the year.

Recorded live to tape during some refreshingly direct studio sessions, then LP is led by this sun-kissed new single.

Out now, 'Why You Gotta Do It' is an off kilter piece of guitar-led soft pop, featuring a vocal that is both heart-on-sleeve and whimsically self-effacing.

Backed by a surreal video, the single is Willie J Healey at his best. He comments:

"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."
