LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12 (UPI) --
Parody singer "Weird Al" Yankovic's 12th album will be a two-disc set featuring six animated music videos.
"Straight Outta Lynwood" hits U.S. stores Sept. 26 via Way Moby/Volcano Records.
The videos include "Don't Download This Song" -- directed and animated by Academy Award nominee Bill Plympton -- described as a humorous a plea for fans not to illegally download music.
Another video, "Close But No Cigar" is directed by "Ren & Stimpy" creator John Kricfalusi.
A tribute to music legend Brian Wilson, "Pancreas," was directed by filmmaker/media artist Jim Blashfield, best known for videos by Talking Heads, Paul Simon and Michael Jackson.
Like Blashfield's other works, "Pancreas" combines live action footage with new animation -- only this time, it stars a pancreas.
