Mac DeMarco responds to calls for him to collaborate with Weezer

This would be geek-rock heaven

Mac DeMarco has responded to the idea of collaborating with fellow geek-rock heroes Weezer.

DeMarco has always been very vocal about his love for the band. Now in a new amateur video interview recently posted to Youtube, he’s suggested that he would be open to the idea given the chance – providing the scenario wasn’t forced or awkward.

“With Weezer?,” DeMarco replied. “That would be crazy.”

“I have no idea, maybe, I’m just not very good at it,” continued. “For me, where I’m at now, I’ve met a lot of people that I admire so I think the option is there, the chance is there.”

“It just always feels weird to me when it’s a setup, kind of playdate thing. But who knows, only time will tell. We’ll see.”

The user skaternicka has also promised to post the second part of the interview if their channel reaches 10,000 subscribers. Sign up here.

Speaking to Pitchfork, DeMarco previously revealed that Weezer’s classic ‘The Blue Album’ was the first album that he ever bought.

“I had 20 bucks, and I was walking down the hip street in my hometown, and I was like, “Maybe I’ll buy a CD.” A year and a half ago, me and my friends really got into Weezer again,” he said. “I love Weezer.”

He’s also covered ‘The Sweater Song’ in the past. Check it out below.

DeMarco’s latest album ‘This Old Dog’ was released in May 2017. He recently spoke about new music, saying that he’s “always writing and recording”.
