Andrew WK has announced plans to release his first album since 2009’s ’55 Cadillac’ early next year.

Describing the as-yet-untitled record, WK says: “I’m going for the sound of pure, unadulterated power; every emotion, every thought, every experience, every sensation, every fear, every joy, every clarity, every confusion, every up, every down… all extruded and concentrated into one thick syrup of super life-force feeling, and then psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of glorious partying”.

The record is scheduled for release on 2 Mar. It will precede a series of UK tour dates which were originally planned for November. Here are those dates as they stand now:

13 Apr: Cardiff, Great Hall
14 Apr: London, The Forum
15 Apr: Birmingham, Academy 2
18 Apr: Norwich, Waterfront
19 Apr: Portsmouth, Wedgewood Rooms
20 Apr: Manchester, Ritz
21 Apr: Glasgow, Garage
