The Lonely Island.

It’s been more than a year since The Lonely Island (a.k.a. Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) released the smash hit “I’m on a Boat” and the group’s debut album: Incredibad. But fans can rest assured that the group is back -- they even have a single to prove it. 

 

“We’re Back!” -- the first single from the group’s sophomore album was recently released, and the video has already garnered more than 1.5 million views on YouTube in just three days. 

 

In an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone revealed the album cover forTurtleneck & Chain, which features the three friends wearing matching blue turtlenecks. Fans can get a hold of the album on May 10. 

 

It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Samberg. The Saturday Night Live cast member will be appearing in Friends with Benefits -- a comedy (that will be released this summer) from the director of Easy A -- co-starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. He’s also in a new film called What’s Your Number, featuring Chris Evans, Anna Faris and Ari Graynor. Samberg is also working on another comedy called I Hate You, Dad, where he’ll be co-starring with Adam Sandler, playing his son in the flick.
