Album Stream: Weird Al, Mandatory Fun

Stream the parody king's 14th studio album now, via Spotify

“Weird Al” Yankovic has popped up in our newsfeeds more than once this week as he geared to release his 14th studio album, Mandatory Fun, out this week via RCA. For those of you who are impatient, the album is now streaming via Spotify. Mandatory Fun features a bad-ass polka medley, not to mention parodies of Pharrell Williams, Lorde and Robin Thicke, and will be likely the last full-length the comedian/singer puts out as, via a recent interview with NPR, it's become tough for him to compete with other parody acts on YouTube, which are free. “Anybody can upload their videos to YouTube and you don’t have to get the blessing of some record executive somewhere to get your stuff heard,” he said. Hear the album in full via Spotify, and check out the tracklist, below:
