Weezer have announced details of a new album.
‘OK Human’, begun in 2019 and finished during lockdown, will be released on 29th January, with first single, ‘All My Favorite Songs’, coming this Thursday (21st January).
It comes ahead of the group’s intended next release, ‘Van Weezer’, which will now follow on 7th May, a year after its original date. That record is now, of course, dedicated to the late Eddie Van Halen, and features singles ‘End of the Game’, ‘Hero’ and ‘Beginning of the End’.
OK Human’ is “piano-based” according to frontman Rivers Cuomo, and has string sections recorded at Abbey Road.
It features the following songs:
All My Favorite Songs
Grapes Of Wrath
Playing My Piano
Bird With A Broken Wing
Everything Happens For A Reason
Here Comes The Rain
La Brea Tar Pits
It’s the third preview of debut album ‘Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile’, due this month.
It comes alongside the news that they’ve signed to Dead Oceans.
The trio’s last album came in 2017 with ‘After Laughter’.
The “dance banger” track, which appears on imminent new album ‘Hold The Girl’, is described as a “turning point” in the record.
