It follows last year's HBO TV special
Flight of the Conchords have announced a new live album, ‘Live In London’, and unveiled a performance of a new song called ‘Iain and Deanna’. Stream the track and check out the LP’s tracklist below.
The Kiwi comedy duo – aka Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement – played a show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo last year. HBO later released the performance as a one-hour TV special, Flight of the Conchords: Live in London.
Following its success, an album of the gig will be released on March 8 via the Sub Pop label. The 22-track LP features seven new songs, including the previously-released single, ‘Father and Son‘. A bonus track titled ‘The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)’ closes the album and wasn’t included in the TV special.
“Can’t fight this fire / Can’t fight this feeling / Let’s take it higher /I’m gonna spunk on the ceiling,” the duo sing during the chorus of ‘Iain and Deanna’.
“You can touch my boobies, like they do in rude movies / As when we’re finished we’ll have to replace all the duvets.”
McKenzie and Clement have previously released music in the form of 2007’s Grammy-winning EP, ‘The Distant Future’ – which was followed by a self-titled debut album in 2008 and ‘I Told You I Was Freaky’ in 2009. The past audio projects were also released by Sub Pop Records.
‘Live In London’ will be available on vinyl, CD, and download – find more info and pre-order here.

Last year, Flight of the Concords discussed the possibility of a third season. “It’s not like we were tired of each other’s company,” McKenzie said. Clement added: “We were tired of working together.”
The original show premiered in 2007, with the second season arriving in 2009. Later that year, the duo announced that it would not return for a third run.
