Andrew W.K. Premieres “Everybody Sins” Video

Andrew W.K. has premiered a new video for his new song “Everybody Sins.” This track is from his new album “God Is Partying,” which will be released on September 10. Andrew W.K. said the following about the video:

”When we were making the video for ‘Everybody Sins’, the director and I were straining over some of the choreography. Now, some people will say that life is far too short and precious to waste it engaging in those sorts of wrestling matches. And others will say that life is far too short to NOT engage in this convulsing kind of ordeal. And other people will say that both of these approaches are incorrect. And what do I say? Everything I just said in the video for ‘Everybody Sins’.”

Andrew W.K. Premieres “Babalon” Music Video

Andrew W.K. has premiered a new video for his new single “Babalon.” Conceptual director Michael R.C. commented:

“With ‘Babalon’, we wanted the audience to slink back down Andrew’s tower and storm the gateway to the city of pyramids with him, or someone who looks like him. We had all been working really hard to lay thee gagging monster down, so it would dwell forever in the chasm of frivolous forming. All these images come from there, from where it’s going. That’s where we put Andrew. Consciousness hasn’t opened reality, only nightmares. Zone out now.”

Andrew W.K. Signs With Napalm Records

Andrew W.K. has signed with Napalm Records. The deal includes an exclusive worldwide recording contract.

Naplam Records said the following:

“We at Napalm Records are thrilled to propel Andrew W.K. to new heights, having been longtime fans of the work since the beginning. To say partnering (and partying) with the team at Andrew W.K. has been exciting and enlightening is an understatement. We’ve got our seat belts on and secured tightly, and we’re ready to party party party our way into the future of Andrew W.K.!”

Kristine Williams also issued a statement on behalf of the Andrew W.K. company:

“Everyone at Andrew W.K. and The Louise Harland Corporation is very pleased to have this opportunity to work with Napalm Records. We look forward to partying harder than ever before!”

Frank Vierti, longtime creative director for Andrew W.K., commented as well:

“I’ve worked on Andrew W.K. since the late ’90s, and it’s been a wild ride since day one. Still, after all the twists and turns, I have an uncanny feeling that the most twisted turns are about to take place, and I’m confident the good people at Napalm Records will hold on tight while we navigate the next loop in this never-ending rollercoaster ride.

It’s rare to find a group of music industry veterans that not only grasp the core of what we’ve been doing for the past two decades, but also have a shared vision that will take us forward and over the edges. They’ve seen through the big picture, they’ve accepted what’s going on in the background, and they’ve agreed on what’s to come. Most importantly, they’re not afraid to push this next chapter and reconnect the dots from 1999, 2001, 2005, 2009, and the tears spanning 2011 and 2018. O praise the Party Gods!”

Andrew W.K. Premieres “Music Is Worth Living For” Music Video

Andrew W.K. has premiered a new video for his song “Music Is Worth Living For.” This track is from his latest album “You’re Not Alone.” The singer commented:

“‘Music Is Worth Living For’ finds me and my band in the throes of a colossal vision quest. Determined to party harder than ever, we steel ourselves against alien elements and battle a formless but formidable storm. Multiplying myself, I attempt to transcend the whirling void by engaging in a series of flailing spiritual maneuvers, vainly wrestling with the emptiness of my own soul. Alas, I discover I had already been consumed by my own triumphantly pathetic creation. And at this moment of devastatingly poignant clarity, I realize I’m back where I started, trapped inside the hardest party of all: Being alive.”

Andrew W.K. Premieres “Ever Again” Music Video

Andrew W.K. has premiered a new video for his new song “Ever Again.” This track is from his new album “You’re Not Alone,” which will be released on March 2.

Andrew W.K. said the following:

“A fantasy in which I imagine what it would be like to actually know the meaning of life – an ecstatic nightmare in which I’ve returned from the brink of annihilation, having clawed the Ultimate Insight from out of its hiding spot, and am finally able to solve the riddle of existence while I cry out in triumphant elation. The desire to possess this total internalized clarity – not only knowing what life really means, but actually feeling the Truth from the inside out – is a mirage for the mind, but a reality for the heart. But coming from a place of confusion and despair, perhaps simply having faith in the possibility of ‘the answer to everything’ is enough to see us through those frequent moments of painful disorientation. I’m not singing from the perspective of someone who has found this ultimate-answer-to-everything, but as someone who’s dreaming about how incredible it would feel if I had. And in a mysterious and strangely uplifting way, it seems that a belief in the possibility of an absolute Truth gives us access to something quintessential and crucial for our own survival – it connects us with a part of ourselves that’s both primal and divine – an empowering, enlightening, and energizing force of unyielding and overwhelming feeling. A feeling that transcends emotion. A feeling that overwhelms all thought and language. A feeling that can’t be understood, but can only be deeply and joyously experienced. And thus, celebrated in worshipful glee. Partying is born.”
