Joanna Newsom to marry The Lonely Island's Andy Samberg
Joanna Newsom is set to wed Andy Samberg of comedy band The Lonely Island.

The pair have been dating for five years and their engagement was revealed by Us Magazine.

Former Saturday Night Live star Samberg formed The Lonely Island with Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone - who is currently starring in HBO's Girls - in 2001. The troupe have had a number of viral hits, including 2006's 'Dick In A Box', which featured Justin Timberlake. The song won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

The Lonely Island released their first album, 'Incredibad', in 2009. It was followed in 2011 by 'Turtleneck & Chain', which included the Akon-featuring 'I Just Had Sex' and 'The Creep' with Nicki Minaj.

Joanna Newsom released her third album, 'Have One On Me', in 2010. It followed her acclaimed 2004 debut 'The Milk-Eyed Mender' and 2006's 'Ys'.

Last year, Newsom unveiled two new songs during live performances, 'The Diver's Wife' and 'Look and Despair'.
