'SNL' skit men The Lonely Island reveal new album cover, guests Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and more

Last week, the Andy Samberg-led comic trio The Lonely Island revealed the hilarious cover to their sophomore album due May 10, Turtleneck & Chain.

In torquoise turtlenecks, gold neclaces, and white slacks, the crew looks less like joke-tellers and more like a ’90s R&B group. “When we met each other in the eighth grade, that was pretty much the look we all had,” group member Akiva Scaffer explained on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Friday evening.

Chain features collaborations with Akon, Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna, among others, likely pulling from their guest appearances on Saturday Night Live. Their joyous Akon-assisted jam “I Just Had Sex” with Akon made its debut as a Digital Short late last year, and has already gone gold. (Stalker smash “The Creep” with Nicki Minaj went similarly viral).

Check out the the covers and album titles that didn’t make the cut after the jump. Andy Samberg hoped for 3 Morks, while Shaffer wished for royal whales and Jorma Toccone tried to play basketball in outer space:

Will it top 2009’s Incredibad? Let us know.

    Ooh, I love TLI and Incredibad. I hate to be the spelling police, but it bothered me that you spelled “turquoise” and “necklaces” wrong in the same sentence.

      As long as there are spelling crimes there’s a need for spelling police.
