The wait is over! Napalm Records and ANDREW W.K. have released the Party God’s fifth full-length studio rock album, God Is Partying, today!
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 about "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.”
