Coming up? It looks like Weezer’s ‘Black Album’ is coming out in May

It looks like Weezer’s ‘Black Album’ is coming out in May

The band let slip the news on Australian radio.

Weezer released their last album ‘Pacific Daydream’ back in October of 2017, but they’ve already revealed (on purpose or not) that another is coming in the first half of this year.

The band were speaking on Australian radio show Double J’s Mornings With Zan Rowe when they revealed that their latest self-titled album - ‘The Black Album’ - will be out in May.

“This other album [Pacific Daydream] just kind of materialized,” Rivers Cuomo said on the show. “I had two folders on my Dropbox: one was the ‘Black Album’ and it didn’t get filled as quickly as this other folder, which I temporarily titled ‘New Folder.’ That one filled up with ten songs that were definitely different, but not quite as different as the ‘Black Album.’ So we put a name on it — Pacific Daydream — and put that out first.

“It’s real challenging for me. I don’t gravitate towards super dark music. There’s always got to be something triumphant about it in the end. So, I’ve been struggling trying to figure out how I can do a ‘Black Album’ as a writer.”

So then, it looks like the ‘Black Album’ is on its way! For now, re-visit the band’s video for ‘Feels Like Summer’ below.
