Weird Al's new album stats

So, last night, over at the Official "Weird Al" Yankovic website, they unveiled the specs on Weird Al's new album, Straight Outta Lynwood. Firstly, they tell us we can expect parodies of songs by:

- Chamillionaire

- Green Day

- Usher

- R. Kelly

- Taylor Hicks

In fact, over at Chamillionaire's MySpace page, Chamillionaire has said that Weird Al's first single will be "White and Nerdy," a parody of Chamillionaire's "Ridin'".

But the BIG news is that Straight Outta Lynwood is a DualDisc. This means that side 1 is the CD, and side 2 is a DVD! What's on this DVD?

- Instrumental mixes of all the songs, remastered in 5.1 surround sound, and with optional karaoke lyrics on screen.

- A 9-minute documentary on the making of the album.

And the big news....


Rumor is that all 6 videos will be animated. Ren and Stimpy animator John Krikfalusi has been saying for months that he did one.

September 26 is the big day.
