“Weird Al” to impose Mandatory Fun this July 15

“Weird Al” Yankovic will release his 13th solo album later this year. Mandatory Fun is out July 15 on RCA Records and is the parody artist’s first release since 2011’s Alpocalypse. There’s precious little information available about the contents of Fun, other than the fact that it contains a parody of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” and a take on a band that Patton Oswalt cryptically says he’s “worshipped since the ’90s.”

Interestingly enough, this might be Yankovic’s last “album” album, since Mandatory Fun is the final LP due on his current contract with RCA. In a blog post last year, Yankovic wrote that he was “carefully weighing his options” about what to do next, saying he might switch to just releasing individual singles online, so as to stay more timely.
