Sydney, AU. (Top40 Charts/ Corey Worthington Official Website) - Lock the doors! Call the Police! Don the yellow sunglasses! Corey Worthington, the infamous "party boy" and media savant is back. The young Australian with the distinctive bleached hair, fur-lined 'hoodie' and giant yellow glasses is suddenly one of the most polarizing figures in the world. First he hosted an out of control party at his parents' house, incurring AUD$20,000 of damage. Then he outwitted an interviewer on Australian TV show 'A Current Affair' with provocative nonchalance, making it the most watched Internet video in the world in January.
This Sunday Corey will enter the Big Brother house in Australia and the country will be watching with fascination. They will see Corey enter the house to the tune of his debut single "FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT (TO PARTY!)".
"FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT (TO PARTY!)" is released exclusively on www.youmenow.com and 3 mobile on Sunday, May 4, 2008. It will be released on i-Tunes and other digital stores on 14th May in Australia and from May 2st May worldwide.
"FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT (TO PARTY!)" is an electro dance version of the classic 1986 Beastie Boys track. The track has been mixed by UK/Australian combo Winston and Yoddy. The ultimate party anthem is amongst the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll'. It's a song synonymous with rebellion and partying and it's the perfect release for Corey fans the world over.
