Free Download of New Slightly-Controversial “Weird Al” Song

My favorite parodist, "Weird Al" Yankovic is back... almost. His new album, due this month, has been delayed. It may have something to do with a bit of controversy over his parody of James Blunt's "You're Beautiful". Seems that, while Blunt is ok with the parody, his record label, Atlantic, isn't. And rather than get on the bad side of a whole label, Al's label would rather release the album sans Bluntness. So... Al's giving it away for free on his web site. It's funny.

For more on the controversy, check out this NPR article. I hope we see the album soon.

  1. I love the new song. WAY's music has always brought me a laugh, can't wait for the new album...hopefully it will include "Pitiful"
