    Grammy Award-winning artist and master of parodies, the one and only "Weird Al" Yankovic, is set to release his 13th studio album Alpocalypse via Jive Records on June 21st. It is his first full studio release since the 2006 Grammy nominated album Straight Outta Lynwood, which spawned the Platinum hit single "White & Nerdy."

    Alpocalypse will be available in both standard and deluxe formats and will include the much talked about Lady Gaga parody, "Perform This Way," which generated two million YouTube hits within two days and at its fever pitch was the #5 trending Twitter topic in the world. The deluxe set will have a bonus DVD containing 10 music videos.

    The highly anticipated "Perform This Way" video is currently being shot in LA with Al once again taking the helm as director. He is just like Lady Gaga, directing his own videos and shit.
