Weezer fans were treated to a big surprise last night. The band shared a music video for a brand new song, "King Of The World," which you can watch above, via Weezer's YouTube. They also announced a lengthy North American tour with Panic! At The Disco, and details about their next album — the White Album.
"King Of The World" contains all the characteristics that have made Weezer a staple in the indie scene for over 20 years. Upbeat rock guitar riffs, witty lyrics, and an anthemic, sing-along chorus help to make this a fun song.
Directed by SCANTRON, the video sees River Cuomo dressed as a king and running frantically on the boardwalk. You'll have to watch the clip to see the reason why.
The White Album — not to be confused with The Beatles' White Album — follows Weezer's classic Blue (1994), Green (2001), and Red (2008) albums. (Apparently, they release a self-titled album of a different color every 7 or 8 years.) It's scheduled for an April 1, 2016 release. (The band says, "this is not a joke," referring to the April Fools release date.) Pick it up on Amazon.
