There’s a great deal of subtle imagery in the new music video from Andrew W.K. for “I’m In Heaven.”

The enigmatic singer/songwriter known globally for his breakthrough 2001 album I Get Wet (and its once-ubiquitous anthem, “Party Hard”) is gearing up for a new chapter, and thus far it’s heavy on symbolism and absolutely crushing heavy metal riffs.

Shared on Thursday, “I’m in Heaven” is quite an experience:

It’s the second new track shared recently from Andrew W.K., and it’s a preview of an upcoming studio album titled God is Partying. That was officially detailed on Thursday as well, and will arrive on Sept. 10. Once out, it will be the fifth full-length rock album released in the U.S., the most recent being 2018’s You’re Not Alone.

“Babalon” was the other song debuted recently, and it, too, is heavy both in its guitar approach and visual aesthetic:

A news release sums up the aura of Andrew W.K. and this new album project:

Emotive yet steadfast, ominous yet invigorating, God Is Partying embraces both the break-ups and break-downs of life, and ANDREW W.K. once again provides his audience with the perfect soundtrack to celebrate life in all its perplexing and euphoric intensity.

Andrew W.K. played all the instruments and co-produced God is Partying with his longtime recording partner, Ted Young.

The track listing:

1) Everybody Sins
2) Babalon
3) No One To Know
4) Stay True To Your Heart
5) Goddess Partying
