NEW YORK, June 16 (UPI) -- U.S. comedic singer-songwriter Weird Al Yankovic Tuesday released his new single "Craigslist," an homage to the Doors, Jive Records said.

The track, featuring original Doors member Ray Manzarek on keyboards, marks Yankovic's first live-action music clip since the 2006 Internet sensation "White & Nerdy."

"Craigslist" was directed by Liam Lynch, who previously helmed "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny" and "Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic."

The "Craigslist" video, which includes a montage of psychedelic stock footage and Yankovic doing his best Jim Morrison impression, is meant to simulate a typical music video that the Doors might have released in the 1960s, Yankovic's record label said.

"We were working with a considerably smaller budget, which was consistent with the look we were trying to achieve," Yankovic said in a statement. "We literally shot it in Liam's garage."
