Alpocalypse is "Weird Al" Yankovic's 13th studio album. It was Al's first album in five years, being the longest length between an album getting released. The first single released was "Whatever You Like", a parody of T.I's "Whatever You Like" in 2008. 4 other of the singles were released in 2009 and Yankovic made an EP out of those 5 tracks named the Internet Leaks EP. He said it was an experiment to see how he could release songs for an album.

The album was released as a CD, Digital Download and Vinyl Record, being the first album since UHF - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Other Stuff to be released on record (although Straight Outta Lynwood had a 12" EP named Selections From Straight Outta Lynwood.)
