Mandatory Fun

Post by CharlesNelson »

Bermuda, based on today's teaser and this link, we think the album title is Mandatory Fun. Is the album title Mandatory Fun?

That site certainly seems to think so! I clicked the link and it took me to weirdal.com! No confirmation there either. :(

Well, since it's at least been confirmed by RCA, I was wondering if you remember how Al might have come up with the title Mandatory Fun? If so, are you at liberty to tell us? I remember you saying you heard what Al came up with for the title sometime around February 2013.

True, it's been the proposed title for a while, but I don't know why he chose it other than the term's ironic nature. I'm sure he'll be asked in interviews once the album's out.

OH BTW, I checked weirdal.com and the album is called Mandatory Fun! Wow, you guys are good!!

Bermuda, never change.

I seem to recall that the rest of the band will also be present in the album's inner-imagery? Will you all be... decorated?
