Well… Weird Al has just released a brand new song today that parodies Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”. However, due to unfortunate circumstances, this will NOT be commercially released on the new album. First off, you can hear the entire song on Al’s YouTube account:
So what happened? Why isn’t it going to be on the new album, you ask? Well, apparently Lady Gaga had strung Al along and forced him to go to the trouble (and cost) of fully producing the song before giving final decision, even after having received the completed lyrics. Al gives the long and short of the whole ordeal on his blog: http://alyankovic.wordpress.com/the-gaga-saga/
So unfortunately, there’s still no date on when the new album will be released. This was going to be the lead single and all money from this song’s sales was going to be donated to the Human Rights Campaign, but alas it’s not meant to be.
