Lee "Scratch" Perry And Andrew WK Collaborate On New Studio Album
Published September 25, 2007

Andrew WK and Lee “Scratch” Perry are collaborating on a new album entitled The Andrew WK Connection with a variety of special guests. The album, to be completed in October, features complete collaboration between the hard-partying, motivational-speaking rocker and the herbally-inclined studio wizard, including instrumentation, lyrics and the overall production sound. The pair met at South by Southwest in 2006 where WK interviewed Perry for a DirectTV special. They had great chemistry during the interview and WK showed interest in interviewing Perry again for another TV project.

Lee "Scratch" Perry is one of the most influential musicians in the development of reggae and dub music worldwide. As a songwriter, a performer and producer, “The Mighty Upsetter” has been at the forefront of reggae music since the late 50's ska movement.

Practically the inventor of the “scratch” turntable effect used by DJs, Perry’s studio innovations has influenced not only reggae but also rock, punk, pop and dance music. Yet, at 70 years old and on the coattails of his last critically acclaimed album Panic in Babylon” as well as a summer long North American tour that visited over 40 cities Lee is back in the studio working on his newest album for Narnack Records.

The songs on the new work are going to embody and be rooted in the classic Lee “Scratch” Perry/Upsetter vibe but take everything to a whole new level. There are no plans for a release date yet. “It's going to be classic to keep current fans on the edge of their seat but also reach out to a whole new fan base," Perry said. "The album will prove to be more relevant than ever."
