Andrew W.K. Announces First New Album Since 2009

Advice columnist, motivational speaker, party guru, and noted My Little Pony enthusiast Andrew W.K. is pivoting back to music. His new album is out March 2, 2018 from Sony. Title, artwork, and other details are yet to be announced, but W.K. is promising a return to the rambunctious, light-hearted hard rock that launched his varied career.

“I’m going for the sound of pure, unadulterated power; every emotion, every thought, every experience, every sensation, every fear, every joy, every clarity, every confusion, every up, every down… all extruded and concentrated into one thick syrup of super life-force feeling, and then psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of glorious partying,” the self-described Party God said in a press release.

W.K.’s most recent albums were 55 Cadillac, a collection of improvisational piano songs, and Gundam Rock, a Japan-only release featuring covers of songs from the Gundam television series. Both came out in 2009. His previous original rock album was 2006’s Close Calls with Brick Walls.

The album announcement is timed to accompany W.K.’s The Party Never Dies tour, which kicked off this weekend. The tour’s U.K. dates were recently rescheduled to April 2018; see the current schedule below.
