Is he or isn’t he the real Andrew W.K.??? I’m still not convinced I know.
Whoever the dude obsessed with partying is, this much we’re sure of: he’s a helluva guy. He pays fans’ speeding tickets, he was recently recognized by the American Association of Suicidology for his uplifting lyrics and positive contributions to the community, and oh hey, his music rules too! After a couple of promising new singles, Mr. Wilkes-Krier (errrr… Mr. Mike?) has allowed NPR to stream his new album You’re Not Alone in its entirety, so we highly suggest you get on that right now and… join the party. I’m one song in and I’m already into it — those keys! That melody! Perfect.
You’re Not Alone comes out this Friday, March 2nd, via Sony; pre-order it here. Stream it now at NPR, because nothing says “party” like Prairie Home Companion.
