Boston’s Will Dailey has released the disco infused pop jam “Bad Behavior,” the second single from his forthcoming album Golden Walker out June 1st, Dailey’s second full length album outside of the major label system. Dailey’s debut release as an independent artist, National Throat was met with a tremendous amount of success, debuting in the top 20 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, receiving over 8 Million streams on Spotify, earning Dailey numerous awards including Album and Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards, Song of the Year and Producer of the Year at the New England Music Awards, Best of the Year by Improper Bostonian Magazine, with the icing on the cake coming in the form of several performances with Eddie Vedder.
Golden Walker was written as a handbook on how to be accountable and take responsibility in our modern world. As Dailey sees it, especially from the perspective of a straight white male, and a Father, accountability is necessary for compassion and connection. It is an essential element for humility and humanity to survive, and hopefully thrive in this world. The disco infused pop jam “Bad Behavior” was sparked by the remarkable juxtaposition that Dailey observed in what was considered “Bad Behavior” in the current cultural climate in the United States. Acts of civil disobedience like the women’s march inspired lyrics like, “you best believe I love your bad behavior marching up the streets in every town, cutting straight into the heart of matters, keep me upright to when all is upside down,” to this current president’s multiple indiscretions, lies, dangerous comments and actions, with lyrics like “best believe I see your bad behavior, staring down the barrel of a gun, blacken the eye of evil intentions, holding up the sky until tomorrow comes. Everyone I know is now afraid of waking up to find out what’s going on with bad behavior.”
Fans who pre-ordered Golden Walker through PledgeMusic have been able to get a early listen to the album and the feedback has been remarkable. One fan commented that “the music was so rich and took me through small nuances of five decades, which was appropriate to the compendium of stories of all the risks we take though life. It’s a real gift for those who listen.” Another said, “what this entire album is doing to me….I can’t well put into English yet. Saying I love it is an understatement. It’s so intense, right at the first listen. I am still shaking, my head is spinning, my synapses on fire, I am all tears and wide smile. What is happening? And, Oh Thank You!” To one fan succinctly wrote, “#WDpoet”
Dailey looks forward to the day when it is proper to celebrate accountability, and Golden Walker is his way of adding compost to the soil for the coming spring. Dailey hopes accountability is part of a path towards a reality that thrives with facts and truth.
KEEP UP WITH WILL DAILEY
