Weezer Unveils Album Art, Sample of New Song

posted by on April 14 at 15:23 PM

You can hear about 30-seconds of a new song, “Pork and Beans,” at amazon.com. It’s not bad, for 30 seconds. The art for the single, however, is atrocious.

There are some news updates on their website too, for those keeping track—it’s likely the record will be released June 17th, it’s likely “Pork and Beans” is the first single, it’s likely that red will be the color of the album. It’s also possible that all info could change. They’re being vague and weird. Shocker.

Also, in better news, you can help Rivers write a song! Because apparently he can’t deliver mediocrity on his own anymore. So if you don’t like what he’s doing, now’s your chance to guide him the right direction:

Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer and writer for rock band Weezer, is employing YouTubers to help him write a song in steps. The first step was the mood, the second was the title, the third was chord progression. Yesterday he posted this video about the arrangement.

We'll always have The Blue Album. That shit is a stone-cold classic, for sure.

Pinkerton's not far behind, either.

Note: The album isn't called "Pork and Beans", the single is. So thus that's most likely the single art, not the actual album art. Don't jump the gun and crab your conclusions.

I'm sticking my foot in my mouth now. But still, it's a single. Rarely do publications like Rolling Stone and Pitchfork list off the best looking singles of all time....
