Andrew W.K. has shared covers of classic love songs on Instagram in honour of Valentine’s Day.
The ‘Party Hard’ singer took requests from fans for which songs he should cover. He performed renditions of Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You’, Meat Loaf’s ‘I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)’, Cheap Trick’s ‘World’s Greatest Lover’, Alice Cooper’s ‘Only Women Bleed’ and the Righteous Brothers’ ‘Unchained Melody’.
In an post accompanying the videos on Talkhouse, Andrew W.K. wrote: “I love Valentine’s Day because I love hearts, I love flowers, I love chocolates, I love candies, I love fudges, I love teddy bears, and I love loving things.”
We’re going to make this Valentine’s Day partier than ever, because I will offer you my party spirit as my own personal Valentinian gift to you. I will sing some love songs of your choice! And I will do my best to sing them as lovingly, preciously, and as partyingly as properly possible.”
Andrew W.K last release was 2011’s ‘The “Party All Goddamn Night” EP’. In a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ in October 2014, he said he has “been stock-piling new songs for several years” but has been prevented from releasing a new album by his other career ventures.
