Having already worked together on numerous projects in the past, Portugal. The Man and Weird Al Yankovic now fully team up on a brand new single.
The new track 'Who's Gonna Stop Me' was released in celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day, and comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Aaron Brown and Josué Rivas.
Speaking about the new video, the directors said, “For the video for ‘Who’s Gonna Stop Me’ we created a collaboration between indigenous artists, friends, artistic collaborators, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, and Indigenous organizations to explore the possibilities of collaboration in this new time.
“To us ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has always been a figure of playful boundary-breaking. His work makes us take less seriously, the things that we take so seriously, like what’s cool, or what’s trendy. ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has been an inspiration for Portugal. The Man since their inception until now.”
While Weird Al added, “I’ve jammed with them at Bonnaroo, I’ve produced remixes for two of their songs, and now I’m doing vocals on ‘Who’s Gonna Stop Me’. Portugal. The Man are not only my friends, but they’re one of my favorite bands in the world, and I’m thrilled to be featured on their new single.”
