Weird Al Yankovic Set to Return With New Album This Summer
Legendary parodist Weird Al Yankovic has announced his return to the music world, confirming July 15 as the release date of his new album, a follow-up to 2011's "Alpocalypse."

AsĀ Rolling Stone reports, the announcement was made via Twitter with a photo of Al dressed up in a Russian military uniform.

Apart from the release date, more fresh info has surfaced. According to TMZ, Yankovic had asked Iggy Azaela for a permission to cover one of her tunes. Comedian Patton Oswalt also touched on the matter via Twitter last month, saying, "Just listened to Al Yankovic's upcoming album and I am in awe. He satirizes a band I've worshiped since the '90s and it ... is ... beautiful."

The new release will mark Yankovic's 15th studio effort, stay tuned for fresh updates.
