Jimmy Fallon's "Tebowie" to be Released on Vinyl!

April 21 is Record Store Day, a day when artists release special rare or unreleased tracks on vinyl records to be sold at local record stores.  This year, Jimmy Fallon will be releasing a 7" single of his hit song "Tebowie", as featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  For those of you who don't know, Tebowie is a hybrid of football star Tim Tebow and rock star David Bowie.  The songs are parodies of David Bowie songs about Tim Tebow.  It's not entirely clear which Tebowie song will appear on the album (the original "Space Oddity" parody, the "Changes" parody featured in The Voice segment, or the more recent "Ziggy Stardust" parody), but I assume it will be the original "Space Oddity" parody.  The B-side of the album will be Jimmy's cover of the theme from "Reading Rainbow", as sung by The Doors.  As a collector of comedy records on vinyl, I can't wait to pick this up!  Stop by your local record store on April 21 to get your copy!  It was also announced that a full album (CD) of Fallon's hit songs from Late Night will be coming out later this summer!
