Andrew WK has released a new video for his anthemic track Music Is Worth Living For.
The song features on his latest album You’re Not Alone – his first record since 2009’s 55 Cadillac – which launched last month via Sony Music.
Speaking about the Tim Dennesen-directed video, Andrew WK says: “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 manoeuvres, 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 realise I'm back where I started, trapped inside the hardest party of all: Being alive.”
It’s also been announced that Andrew WK will perform the track on Conan (opens in new tab) on Tuesday, April 24.
He’ll wrap up a run of UK shows this weekend, with further dates planned across North America over the coming months.
