No more Weird Al Yankovic full-length releases? The King of Parodies says that his newly released album Mandatory Fun will be his last full-length release. Weird Al explains that he'll be taking a digital route in the future to make his material as current as possible.

Al says he plans to hit the road next year with a tour featuring his latest parodies, which include "Tacky," his send-up of Pharrell Williams' hit "Happy," and his take on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," called "Word Crimes." 

For Mandatory Fun, Weird Al says he used his usual method of writing original material first before deciding which hits he should cover to make sure the parodies didn't get too outdated.
