Stereogum sweetheart, virtuoso, and energy purveyor Andrew W.K. has been named Person of the Year by the American Association of Suicidology for his tirelessly elevating music that savors the experience of the mayhem of being.
AWK, whose up and coming collection You’re Not Alone was gone before by the single “Music Is Worth Living For”, has likewise fortified his message through motivational addresses and compositions. “Words can’t satisfactorily pass on my wonder at having been chosen for this novel acknowledgment,” AWK said of the respect. “I’m thankful to the American Association of Suicidology for the amazingly profitable work they’ve improved the situation so long, and keep on doing now, when it’s required like never before.”
