Weird Al Is Tacky
Weird Al’s latest album Mandatory Fun has been released and is getting rave reviews. In an effort to promote the album, Al will be world-premiering eight brand new music videos for the next several days. You heard it correctly – one new single everyday day on his website.
Mandatory Fun will mark his last official full length album. Don’t worry, Al isn’t retiring; Mr. Yankovic is taking a different approach to releasing new music. The parody king is going to focus on releasing music singles to jive with the patterns of the digital age. Now when a big hit song is blazing up the chart, he will be able to immediately release a parody of that song instead of attempting to package it together with a group of other songs. Below are two out of the eight songs he has released thus far. Eat your heart out Dr. Demento!
