In the event you had been holding out hope for The Purple Album, you’re going to have to attend somewhat longer. Showing on Good Morning America to advertise Weezer’s upcoming Hella Mega Tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy, Rivers Cuomo detailed the band’s subsequent mission, a four-album cycle referred to as Seasons. “I assume I’ve had a variety of time on my fingers, so I wrote 4 albums that we’ll put out subsequent yr,” Cuomo mentioned. This already comes after Weezer released one pandemic-made album, OK Human, in January, and the band’s pre-pandemic delayed album, Van Weezer, in Might. Every Seasons album, Cuomo added, will arrive on the primary day of that season in 2022. “Spring is sort of like glad chill,” he defined, “after which we transfer by means of dance-rock, and like a Strokes–model album for the autumn, and unhappy acoustic, Elliott Smith–model for the winter.” Effectively, when you’ve been clamoring for some “Elliott Smith–model” Weezer songs recently, congrats.
