Over the past few months, the interweb has been abuzz over the next Weezer album, due this summer.
After becoming internet darlings after the release of Pinkerton, Weezer has had a dedicated fanbase that has been outspoken towards the changes in their sound featured in the albums since, the 2001 self titled release (nicknamed ‘The Green Album’), 2002’s Maladroit, and 2005’s Make Believe, an album that many thought was a return to form.
However, word started to leak that this next release was to be the album fans have been waiting over a decade for. Named Weezer once again (nicknamed “The Red Album”) , fans have been foaming at the mouth for something, anything to leak.
Thank Amazon, kids. A sample of the first single, “Pork And Beans” is available here.
…is that the Blue album I hear? One can only hope.
Weezer (2007), aka The Red Album, is due this June.
