Portugal. the Man has dropped a new song called “Who’s Gonna Stop Me,” featuring none other than “Weird Al” Yankovic.

According to a press release, “Who’s Gonna Stop Me” marks the first time Weird Al has been credited as a featured artist on a song, and is also the master parodist’s first non-comedic release.

“Who’s Gonna Stop Me,” which you can download now via digital outlets, was released in commemoration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, October 12. Along with its accompanying video, which is streaming now on YouTube, the song “aims to honor and raise awareness about Indigenous culture and rights.”

“I’ve jammed with [Portugal. the Man] at Bonnaroo, I’ve produced remixes for two of their songs, and now I’m doing vocals on ‘Who’s Gonna Stop Me,'” Weird Al says. “Portugal. the Man are not only my friends, but they’re one of my favorite bands in the world, and I’m thrilled to be featured on their new single.”

Last week, Portugal. the Man’s PTM Foundation announced a fundraising program for the Navajo Water Project and its effort to supply the Navajo Nation with clean, running water. The band will match up to $20,000 in donations.

Portugal. the Man’s most recent album is 2017’s Woodstock, which spawned the mega-hit single “Feel It Still.”
