Having surprised fans with the announcement of a new studio album, OK Human, earlier within the week, Weezer have shared the gathering’s first single, All My Favourite Songs.
With the album’s title being a cheeky nod to Radiohead traditional OK Laptop, the quirky accompanying video for All My Favourite Songs references the alienating features of know-how, and our want for real human contact.
“OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a factor of the previous,” the band say in a tongue-in-cheek assertion. “All we might do is look again on historic instances when people actually mattered and when the darkish tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist. We used our devices to hook up with the Nineteen Sixties and Nineteen Seventies and, with the orchestra, again to the 18th and nineteenth centuries. We had no click on observe or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electrical guitar.”
Apparently impressed by the Beach Boys’ timeless Pet Sounds album, OK Human is about for launch on January 29. The quartet’s beforehand introduced Van Weezer album, devoted to Eddie Van Halen and touted as a tribute to the arduous rock bands who first impressed Rivers Cuomo to choose up a guitar, will now be launched on Might 7.
Having been pressured to postpone their involvement within the Hella Mega tour alongside Inexperienced Day and Fall Out Boy, Weezer will return to Europe in June, pandemic allowing. The revised dates on the Hella Mega tour are available on the Hella Mega website.
