WEIRD AL To Release New Music On iTunes Before Traditional Album Release
 
Source: [url=http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=90827837&blogID=437292861]Weird Al On MySpace[/url]

Straight from Saint Alfred of Yankovic's blog:

[i]
NEW SINGLE!

Remember when I said I was going to start releasing tracks to iTunes as soon as I finished recording them? Well, I'm in the studio this very moment and the first track released from my next album will be available on iTunes a week from today (October 7)!

This is extremely exciting for me. One of the hardest things I've had to deal with in my career is keeping my material topical even though I only release albums every 3 or 4 years. Now, with the advent and popularity of digital distribution, I don't have to wait around while my songs get old and dated I can get them out on the Internet almost immediately. It kind of boggles my mind I thought of the idea for this new song a week ago, and next week it's getting released!

I'm only supposed to "tease" this release right now I'll post more info about it in a couple days. But I will say that it's a parody of a song that very recently was (or perhaps still is) the number one song in the country. That would be another first for me I don't think I've ever released a parody of a song while the original song was still number one!

iTunes will have an exclusive on this song for two weeks, after which I guess it will be available wherever else digital downloads are sold. But I'm really kind of hoping this sucker will chart, so if you can, please buy it the first week it's out!

If this release goes well, there will be more to come. Thanks in advance for your support!

Besides the fact I've been listening to Weird Al longer than metal, this kind of news bodes for the future for many artists. I'm damn glad to see this. Make that damn glad 27 times over.

Oh God, I bet it's a spoof of "I Kissed A Girl".

I've always said there needs to be a tribute to Chopin entitled: "Chompin' on Chopin"

:nerdy:

These are the sorts of jokes that make it apparent I took 2+ years of music theory in school.

maybe rock n roll train parody or even the day that never comes parody as well would put a :) on my face

It's out!

Whatever You Like... a parody of some "#1 smash" (that I've never heard of) called Whatever You Like.

Hmmm..... the lyrics are pretty damn funny a la Al. :)

Apparently it's a parody of a T.I. song.

I like more of his "original" works: One More Minute ...

I forget the name of the song, but it was in the movie Johnny Dangerously, and here's a lyric: "if money can't buy happiness, I'll guess I just have to rent it". it had a poppy 20's-30's horn vibe goin'. This is the Life i want to say...

You're Good Enough for Now

and the one about the movie "[evilCreature]s from Outer Space".
