Bethany Cosentino joins Rivers Cuomo and co during KROQ session
Weezer have have performed a stripped-back version of new song ‘Go Away’ with Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. See below to watch.
The song was recorded during a visit to US radio station KROQ yesterday (October 3). A full version of the collaboration will feature on new album ‘Everything Will Be Alright In The End’ which is due for release on October 6. It 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.
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’
