Weezer have offered fans the opportunity to pick their next single.
The band released new album ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ on October 6 and have offered fans the chance to select from three tracks on the record to be their next single.
In a post on Facebook the band asked, “How much do you think each of these 3 songs would help Weezer’s career if released as the next single?” with ‘Ain’t Got Nobody’, ‘Da Vinci’, and ‘Go Away’ offered as options. The latter features Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino on vocals.
‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ is the US group’s first LP since ‘Hurley’ in 2010 and is produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars, who worked on some of the band’s classic albums, including the ‘Green’ and ‘Blue’ LPs.
Speaking about the album in a recent interview, frontman Rivers Cuomo spoke about how Weezer are rejecting current trends and going back to their roots.
“I think there are a few ways of adjusting to the new world where people don’t listen to albums anymore – they listen to playlists or just buy singles – and maybe we’ve tried to evolve with the time, but you know that’s not who we are, so ultimately this time we’re going all in again and we’re going to make a great rock album like the good old days and put everything we have into it,” he said. “Maybe no one will appreciate it that way but we think that it’s what our core fans really want from us and that’s what we’re best at.”
The ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ tracklisting is:
‘Ain’t Got Nobody’
‘Back To The Shack’
‘Eulogy For A Rock Band’
‘I’ve Had It Up To Here’
‘The British Are Coming’
‘The Futurescope Trilogy’
‘i. The Waste Land’
‘iii. Return to Ithaka’
