New Andrew WK LP Announced: Gundam Rock!

GundamRock_C You see that headline?

It's got nothing but truth in it.

You see that sleeve?

It's got nothing but dope in it.

Following the uber-success (In Japan, and my house) of his The Japan Covers set, Andrew Wk just announced the release next month of Gundam Rock.



OWWWWWWW!, he say:

After the success of Andrew's 2008 release of Japanese pop rock covers, Andrew W.K. was approached by Sunrise Inc., the owners of the Gundam franchise, to record an album of classic Gundam music, to celebrate Gundam's 30th anniversary.

The album of English-language rock covers will be released on September 9th, in Japan, by Andrew's longtime label, Universal Music Japan. The release will feature the music from the first "Mobile Suit Gundam" television series and movie trilogy as Andrew's versions of the Gundam score and background music, plus Andrew will reenact Gundam's opening narration and the famous memorial speech that the Gihren Zabi character gives for his fallen brother.

The album's front cover artwork features original artwork illustrated by respected Gundam artist, Akira Yasuda. The image depicts Andrew flying through space next to the Mobile Suit Gundam. The album's design also features special photographs by Andrew Strasser.

The album may be purchased HERE.

Nice to have things to look forward to.
