If all of the fart and sex jokes on 2006s The Pick of Destiny were getting a bit stale, then Jack Black has some good news for you. The 41-year-old actor/musician/comedian and one half Los Angeles, Calif.-based guitar duo Tenacious D has announced that the band should have a new album out by the end of 2011.
While his most recent musical endeavor may have found him teaming up with Gullivers Travels co-star Jason Segel to remake Bing Crosby and David Bowies version of Little Drummer Boy, Black promises that the subject matter on The Ds still-untitled third LP will be a bit more R-rated. Were gonna be talking about love, he told Spinner, theres gonna be some songs about sex and theres gonna be songs about food.
Black adds that he and lead guitarist/vocalist Kyle Gass are about halfway through the writing process and in the middle of the recording process. As of now, Black doesnt have plans to release a movie with the upcoming album, but is open to the idea. This is strictly a musical endeavor, he says, but I wouldnt rule out another film although it would probably be on a lower-budget.
All this is awesome news, so well keep you posted. In the meantime, check out one of our favorite sequences from the Pick of Destiny film below.
