Andrew WK has announced that he’ll launch a new studio album in 2018.

The as-yet-untitled record is due to arrive on March 2 next year via Sony Music.

WK says: “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 news comes as WK embarks on The Party Never Dies Tour, which started this week in Minneapolis. He has live dates planned throughout North America for the rest of this year and will return to the UK in April for seven shows that were originally scheduled to take place this November.
