Music + Entertainment | Weird Al Headed To Broadway After #1 iTunes Album?‏


musicandentertainment_logoThe “mandatory” viral sensation that is Weird Al sat down with Larry King yesterday on the Emmy nominated Larry King Now to discuss his newest and very last album, “Mandatory Fun,” which is currently competing with Jason Mraz for the No. 1 spot on iTunes.

“It’s probably the last album for me, from now on I am going to be releasing singles…I think that’s the way for me to be timely,” Weird Al explained.

During his Larry King Now interview, Al also dished on how he chooses the right song to parody, obtained the name Weird Al and hinted at his upcoming plans for Broadway.

“It’s kind of on a whim. I look for songs who have a unique musical or lyrical hook, something that really jumps out at you when you hear it on the radio and it really boils down to whether or not I can come up with a clever enough idea for it,” said Weird Al.

When Larry asks if Al ever saw himself leaving the musical world Al responded:

“I’ve gotten some offers to do some writing for some possible Broadway musicals. There’s different things I can do with my kind of sensibility and do the same type of comedy but branch out.”

Broadway may seem like a far stretch, but Al Yankovic was working in a mail-room in 1982 before signing his the record deal contract that transformed Weird Al into a colossal success.
