Premium Collection: The Japan Covers, known as Ippatsu Shōbu: Covers (一発勝負~カヴァーズ Ippatsu Shōbu~Kavāzu?, lit. "One-Shot Game: Covers") in Japan, is a cover album by Andrew W.K.. The album, consisting of covers of various J-pop songs, was released in Japan by Universal Music Group on November 26, 2008.

The songs were originally marketed as 30-second ringtones and repackaged in their complete versions as this 14-song album. Andrew W.K. is quoted as saying that this album is a "gift to the Japanese people, for all the incredible warmth and kindness they've given me over the years."[1]
