Jimmy Fallon Gets Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder for New Album
Published Apr 23, 2012Jimmy Fallon has delivered a lot of LOL-worthy songs on his Late Night with Jimmy Fallon program the last few years, and some of those performances will be collected on the comedian's new album Blow Your Pants Off, which Warner Bros. releases June 12.
"So far everyone that's heard the album had their pants blown off," Fallon joked in a statement. "There's nothing that we can do about it."
A press release explains that the LP will be made up of viral favourites and original music, and will feature guest spots from Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder.
Though a tracklisting has yet to appear, the contributors list suggests that Fallon and Springsteen's take on LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" and Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" could pop up on the record, as well as Timberlake team-ups like "The History of Rap." And who knows, maybe television backup band the Roots will help out the host as well.
While Fallon hasn't put out an album since his 2002 disc The Bathroom Wall, the performer issued a seven-inch slab featuring "Tebowie" and a Doors-inspired cover of the Reading Rainbow theme song for last week's Record Store Day. It's also unclear if either tracks will appear on Blow Your Pants Off.
