Earlier this 12 months, Andrew W.Ok. introduced his first full-band tour in 5 years, a return to his roots of partying and making music as a substitute of partying and speaking about partying. Now, W.Ok. has truly introduced a brand new album, his first since 55 Cadillac and the Japan-exclusive Gundam Rock in 2009—eight years in the past. This comes from Pitchfork, which notes that the brand new album doesn’t have a title or monitor listing but, however W.Ok. has confirmed that will probably be accessible on March 2, 2018. Right here’s how W.Ok. described his hope for the album in an appropriately radical assertion:
I’m going for the sound of pure, unadulterated energy; each emotion, each thought, each expertise, each sensation, each worry, each pleasure, each readability, each confusion, each up, each down…all extruded and concentrated into one thick syrup of tremendous life-force feeling, after which psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of superb partying.
Clearly he needed to sneak “partying” in there.
