NEW YORK, June 21 (UPI) -- U.S. pop satirist "Weird Al" Yankovic takes aim at Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and T.I. on his latest CD, "Alpocalypse," Jive Records said.

The label Tuesday released Yankovic's 13th studio album, which also features "Perform this Way" a spoof of Lady Gaga's "Born this Way."

The CD is the three-time Grammy Award-winner's first album in nearly five years.

"Al and his long-time bandmates were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors' Ray Manzarek," Jive noted in a news release. "Yesterday saw the world-premiere of the wildly popular 'Perform this Way' music video, in which Yankovic, sporting the body of a Gaga-like female dancer [thanks to CGI magic,] cycles through a couple dozen bizarre and extravagant wardrobe options and battles a Madonna doppelganger."
