Weird Al Yankovic Announces New Album 'Mandatory Fun,' Shares Cover and Track Listing
Legendary music comedian Weird Al Yankovic has shared full details regarding his new album "Mandatory Fun," unveiling release date, front cover and track listing.

As Al's 14th studio effort, the 12-track self-produced record clocks in at 45 minutes and is set for US release on July 15 via RCA Records.

As reported, Yankovic has requested a permission to cover Iggy Azalea, leading to a conclusion that "Handy" of "Tacky" might be a parody tune to Iggy's "Fancy," Fuse reports.

Sharing a series of guesses regarding new songs, the same source connected "Tacky" with Pharrell's "Happy," "Foil" with Lorde's "Royals," "Word Chimes" with Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and "Inactive" to Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive." Note that these are all guesses and not the official info, but they do seem like legitimate possibilities.

So without further ado, check out the cover and track listing below.

"Mandatory Fun" track listing:

01. Handy
02. Lame Claim to Fame
03. Foil
04. Sports Song
05. Word Crimes
06. My Own Eyes
07. Now That's What I Call Polka!
08. Mission Statement
09. Inactive
10. First World Problems
11. Tacky
12. Jackson Park Express
