Album From 'Late Night' Host Set for June 12
Last night NBC's "Late Night," Jimmy Fallon unveiled the cover for his upcoming "Blow Your Pants Off" album, which will feature appearances from Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.
The risque cover shows Fallon baring his backside atop a bearskin rug, but in the name of propriety and marketing, the suited-from-the-waist-up host is covered by a "June 12" sticker as he sips a glass of red wine and relaxes by a crackling fire. But if you buy it, Fallon pointed out seductively, it doesn't come with a sticker.
"I don't remember taking this photo at all," Fallon said on the show, holding up the album cover. "It's just a guy relaxing at home with a nice glass of wine. Starts listening to the album and his pants blew off."
As The Roots' Questlove fell into a fit of laughter on the side of the stage, Fallon added, "I don't know if this is my butt or a stunt butt. There's rumors going around that it's the 'Mona Lisa' of album covers."
Dave Matthews and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder are also featured on the comedy album, which drops June 12. We'll have to wait to see if any skittish big-box stores take issue with Fallon's bare bum and pull it from shelves.
