It was NPR Music‘s First Listen last week and Jason Heller of NPR says, “The sprawling, 16-song album is a cornucopia of spirit-lifting, even occasionally reflective party jams every inch as valiant as its cover.”
In addition to his new music, in recent years Andrew has kept busy with the formation of his own political party (The Party Party), a 50 State Power of Partying Motivational Speaking Tour, and was just now named ‘Person of the Year‘, by the American Association of Suicidology, in recognition of his nearly two decades of positive and celebratory entertainment.
On You’re Not Alone, the party is reborn, delivering everything one would want from an Andrew W.K.album – high octane, full throttle rock ’n’ roll powered by buoyant, infectious, and triumphant melodies – plus new levels of intimacy and intensity never before reached by Andrew’s previous party rock recordings. His music, always a music of extremes, is more relentlessly upbeat and celebratory than ever, while also exploring contradiction and confusion in a joyous and liberating sonic atmosphere.
The cover art for the new album was painted by legendary artists, Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. These two masters of fantasy worked closely with Andrew over a six month period, crafting the painting based on their unique three-way vision.
