Andrew WK announces new album details and tracklisting
Andrew WK has announced details of his new album, the follow up to 2008's 'The Japan Covers'.

Called '55 Cadillac', the album was recorded by WK in just two hours, and then edited down to eight piano-led tracks. It is released on September 7.

In a statement, the Californian explained that he recorded the entire album without prior consideration or planning.

"It felt to me like I was hanging by a thread the whole time, or I was about to fall off a cliff," he explained of the recording process.

"A lot of times I was just trying to keep playing and keep this momentum going. I would play for as long as I could or as long as it seemed right and, most of the time, when I stopped that was that song."

The tracklisting for '55 Cadillac' is:

'Begin The Engine'
'Seeing The Car'
'Night Driver'
'Central Park Cruiser'
'5'
'City Time'
'Car Nightmare'
'Cadillac'
