Andrew W.K. released a dark and energetic video for “Ever Again” earlier today. Otherwise known as Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier, the American songwriter, producer and instrumentalist has always strove to represent the beastly euphoria of partying in his music. The new video is no exception. W.K.’s appearance alone exudes the kind of attitude his music puts forth.
W.K. says the video is “about the feeling of excitement and power and clarity and confidence that comes from music.” W.K. hopes that music can be the answer to everything in the universe. He admits to not actually knowing that answer even if he thinks music can lead to it. “It was fun,” however, “to sing as though I did have the answer to kind of almost fantasize about what it would be like to have that clarity, to have that certainty, that kind of faith in something,” he said.
W.K. blew up in November 2001 after releasing I Get Wet, his debut album that featured hits like “Party Hard,” and “She Is Beautiful.” The album is visually notable for its artwork, shot by Roe Ethridge, that depicts W.K. with wet hair and a bloody face. The artist has worked on television and radio projects in addition to his music. He is also a writer and occasionally a motivational speaker.
