The Wait for the New Weezer Record Now 21 Days Less Than Originally Planned

posted by on May 13 at 12:03 PM

As Brian Cook mentioned in this morning’s Music News, Weezer pushed up the release of their new album from June 24 to June 3rd.

“Due to popular demand and the intense reaction to the ‘Pork And Beans’ single, the wait time for the new album has just been reduced!”

Of course, last week’s leak of a bunch of songs probably had something to do with it too.

Here’s the band’s six-minute medley/rock opera that everyone’s been talking about:


Weezer - The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)

It’s daring to do something different, which I can appreciate from artists. And while the first few listens had me laughing, it didn’t take long for this song to start to feel so ridiculous and contrived… Ugh.

And two more:


Weezer - “Cold, Dark World” and “Everybody Get Dangerous”

If all these songs are indeed on the album, along with “Pork and Beans,” this will be the most disjointed record the band will have ever released. And I can’t believe I still care at this point.

That's pretty much always been my reaction to Weezer.
