Rivers Cuomo puts back book project for new record

Rivers Cuomo has announced the release of an album of Weezer demos.

Posting on his Myspace page yesterday (October 15), the singer said that the recordings would date from the earliest period of Weezer to the present day.

Cuomo said: “I’ve compiled a CD of my favourite demos from the years 1992 to 2007 and Geffen Records has agreed to put it out this December, on the eleventh. I hope you enjoy it. I may also be able to put out more demo CDs in the near future. Not to mention the Weezer developments, which are also extremely great.”

’Alone – The Home Recordings Of River Cuomo’ is to be released in the US on December 11.

Meanwhile, the singer has also announced that the release of a long-mooted book is to be put back.

“The book is now going to come out at a much later date — a year? Two years? Three years? I don’t know,” he wrote. “It’s going to be very cool, though. I’m digging what I’ve already got (nearly 400 pages) and I’m enjoying the process of writing and researching.”

Weezer are currently working on the follow-up to 2005’s ’Make Believe’.
