Fans can get a taste of what’s to come with the live video release for Every Day and Every Night, a soaring Motown-inspired track and album highlight. WILSN’s live vocal prowess must be seen to be believed.

“Soul music never goes out of fashion because it’s pure,” WILSN describes. “It’s all about a great melody, a great beat and harmony that moves you and makes you feel something.”

“In today’s landscape of artists trying so hard to do something different often for the sake of being different, it’s nice to just engage with the human voice in an unadulterated way.”

Those Days Are Over has all the hallmarks of an instant classic. The record features singles ‘Those Days Are Over’ – released last month and the #1 most playlisted song by an Australian artist that week and Hurts So Bad, a duet with The Teskey Brothers’ front man Josh Teskey, which was added to a jaw-dropping 20+ Spotify editorial playlists across the US, Europe and Australia, and featured in KCRW’s 5 Songs To Hear This Week.
