Nice, I had no idea a new album was coming, so this is a pleasant surprise.

I loved this guy in the 80's, but I don't know any of the songs he's parodying now.

I'm really glad he's still at it.

Okay, here we go:

'Tacky'-based on 'Happy' (Pharrell Williams)

'Word Crimes"-based on 'Blurred Lines' (Robin Thicke)

"Foil"-based on "Royals" (Lorde)

BTW, here's the video to see instead of to link to:

^ Oh, I could look them up, but the original songs aren't anything I would ever listen to.

Al's 80's stuff was all based on songs I would hear all the time, so I "got" those.

At least he's staying current.

Wow, Word Crimes was amazing.

Weird Al is really a cunning linguist.
