Andrew W.K. Unveils New Single, ‘Stay True To Your Heart’

The wait is nearly over! Napalm Records and ANDREW W.K. will release the Party God’s fifth full-length studio rock album, God Is Partying, this Friday, September 10, 2021! The long-awaited nine track opus of maximalist grandeur drops nearly 20 years after the release of his chart-topping full-length debut, I Get Wet.

Gifting fans with one last taste of the new album before it drops this Friday, ANDREW W.K. has revealed a follow up to recent new singles “Babalon”,“I’m In Heaven” and “Everybody Sins”, entitled “Stay True To Your Heart”. The track’s mechanical heartbeat builds towards a butterfly drum fill, bursting into an utterly soaring chorus, as the Party God conveys one of God Is Partying’s most addictive hooks. “Stay True To Your Heart” is a standout offering, evoking the uniquely delirious euphoria that ANDREW W.K. delivers so well.

ANDREW W.K. says on “Stay True To Your Heart”:  
“What is the most brutal form of positivity? I want to get in there. Being and staying. Being true to yourself isn’t the same as staying true to your heart. They told me all about this when I started forming. Approving the disapproval of others. Happiness. Seriousness. Zones of care – yourself, your family of supervisors, your city of strangers, your bathroom, your basement, your street. What does it mean for me to be not-human? What does it mean for a not-human to posses my party mindset? It’s not appropriate for me to analyze this song in that way. The song is meant to analyze me. And the listener is meant to party.”

Andrew W.K. Premieres New Single & Video For “Babalon”

At the beginning of February 2021, Napalm Records and the inimitable God of Partying, ANDREW W.K., announced the impending release of a massive new single, “Babalon”, and today, that new single is officially released and available worldwide (Pre-orders are available via the following link), in both physical and digital formats, with an accompanying music video.
 
On the “Babalon” track, ANDREW W.K.’s path of partying takes a sharp left-hand turn, making for a triumphant and explosive new showcase for his prowess as a multi-instrumentalist. Swinging drums and a sinister guitar riff open the song’s heavenly gates, veering into organ-driven, hermetical verses. This enormous sonic conquest descends like an angel, lowered by W.K.’s rich and dynamic vocal delivery, that at last builds up to a spine-tingling climax – leaving Andrew’s partiers clamoring for more.

When asked to comment on the “Babalon” music video, the project’s conceptual director, Michael R.C., offered the following:
“With ‘Babalon’, we wanted the audience to slink back down Andrew’s tower and storm the gateway to the city of pyramids with him, or someone who looks like him. We had all been working really hard to lay thee gagging monster down, so it would dwell forever in the chasm of frivolous forming. All these images come from there, from where it’s going. That’s where we put Andrew.”
 
He added: 
“Consciousness hasn’t opened reality, only nightmares. Zone-out now.”
