    I haven't really kept up with AWK since The Wolf which has nothing to with the music but rather his distribution being all over the place. Nice to see this one being released without any label headaches. PARTY!

    ANDREW W.K. RELEASES MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SONG “EVER AGAIN”, ANNOUNCES NEW TOUR DATES SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ALBUM, YOU’RE NOT ALONE, DEBUTED TODAY ON ZANE LOWE’S ‘WORLD RECORD’ SHOW ON BEATS 1/APPLE MUSIC

    New York, NY (January 29, 2018) – Andrew W.K. continues his quest to reach 'pure party euphoria' with the release of “Ever Again”, the second single from his upcoming album, You're Not Alone (due out March 2nd, 2018 via RED MUSIC/SONY MUSIC). The new track debuted this morning as Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’ on Beats 1/Apple Music. In a surprise twist, Zane himself requested that Andrew take over the entire broadcast as Zane’s first ever guest-host. The official music video for “Ever Again” premiered at Noisey, who said, “Andrew W.K.'s ‘Ever Again’ video will literally save your soul… please listen to this song and watch the video and just try to feel cynical.”

    Andrew describes the song as, "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.”

    Andrew is asking for fans to listen responsibly to his new single so there isn’t another incident like Luke Mitchell’s now infamous speeding ticket party last week. Luke was driving while listening to You’re Not Alone’s debut single, “Music is Worth Living For” on the UK's BBC Radio 1, when he found himself overtaken by pure party propulsion and began to accelerate far past the legal speed limit. To his dismay, he was pulled over by a police officer and given a ticket, which Andrew caught wind of and promptly offered to pay. Andrew explained that he felt responsible for the ‘sonic party power’ which compelled Luke to drive too fast.

    Andrew will will be taking his party on the road (while obeying all traffic laws), in celebration of his new You’re Not Alone album, and announces a string of new tour dates. Performances begin at the South by Southwest festival and Treefort Fest in March, continuing with a UK tour in April, before the full U.S. run kicks off on April 28 in Jacksonville at the Welcome To Rockville Festival. A full list of tour dates can be found below.

    Tickets for the new tour dates will be available for pre-order exclusively at AndrewWK.com/tour, on Wednesday, January 31st, at 10am local time.

    General ticket sales begin on Friday, February 2nd.
