Weird Al writes of the album on his blog:

The physical album is available in two configurations - as a regular CD in a standard plastic jewel case with a 20-page color booklet, or (for just slightly more) as a deluxe version with both a CD and DVD in a digipak (also with the color 20-page booklet) as well a cool embossed cover with gold foil lettering. The DVD includes music videos for ten (TEN!!) of the songs on the new album.

The "Perform This Way" video is unfortunately not on the new album's DVD (we just finished it a couple days ago, for crying out loud) but it's available on iTunes right now. And I tweeted a while back that we were doing a video for every single song on the new album. I wasn't lying! That means I'm also doing a video for "Polka Face" - the first time I've ever done an "official" video for one of my polka medleys. 10 separate directors are currently working on this... it will be mostly animated, but there's a tiny bit of live action as well. It'll be out in about a month.

I announced that "Alpocalypse" is being released on vinyl in July, and I'm very excited about that.

Will you be purchasing Weird Al's latest offering?
