When you’ve been a performer for nearly 40 years, a boxed set cataloging your 15 studio albums far exceeds the indignity of a flimsy cardboard sleeve. Which is why the upcoming “Weird Al” career-spanning box set will arrive in its very own accordion.
According to a report by Vulture, the Comedy Bang! Bang! bandleader’s compilation — appropriately titled Squeeze Box — will include rare tracks and a 100-page book chronicling the work, life, and Hawaiian shirts of America’s favorite song parodist. And rejoice, audio purists: You’ll be able to buy Squeeze Box in vinyl, CD, and digital formats.
Look for the Weird Al box, er, accordion set next year. Fingers crossed that the special edition will come packaged in a giant spatula.
