Leave it to Weezer

Already, I sing this song, at least once a day, and have been doing so, precisely, for the past 15 years – apparently Weezer recorded this song five years ago, but it showed up today on the Weezer message boards.

Rivers tells American Songwriter, that recording this song was no joke:

“No. I loved that song. It was actually Rick Rubin’s suggestion. We both loved that song and we both thought it would be great for Weezer, and for my voice, and it’d be great to do like a rock version of it with more of an alternative aesthetic. And you know, just the way I would sing it versus in the way Toni Braxton would sing it. And I love the way it came out, and I think probably the rest of the band really does not like it, and that’s probably why it didn’t make our fifth record, in 2005 when we were recording it.”

Weezer has a new Album

Weezer Album, Hurley

The album just name’s itself. The album cover comes from a photo taken with Rivers Cuomo and Jorge Garcia, but clearly the decision was made to crop the photo and let it be thy name.  And simply enough it’s called ‘Hurley’ – you gotta love it.
‘Hurley’ is due out Sept. 14 via indie label, Epitaph Records.

New Weezer and it’s a Hit

If you go check out Weezer’s website, you’ll hear “Pork and Beans” that’s streaming from their front page. The obvious first single is catchy and clearly will be a hit with the teen-something slacker skater types.

Their self-titled album, informally labeled “Red Album” is out June 24, 2008. This makes their third self-titled “Weezer” album out of six.

Fontman Rivers Cuomo tells Rolling Stone, “We put a lot of emphasis on blowing our minds with creative freakouts.”
