The Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer are completing their transition from Saturday Night Live joke rappers and viral-video legends to legitimate musicians. Their debut release, The Wack Album, will feature collaborations by such notable musicians as Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga to Kendrick Lamar and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong.
Plus, the group will be playing their first-ever live show in July at Chicago’s Aragon Balloom. While The Lonely Island may be evolving, don’t think the group has forgotten how to get attention on the internet: Up until the release, they are releasing a new song or video every Wednesday, a.k.a. “Wack Wednesdays.”
